You can find a transcript, here.

We are doing a twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy technology folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday, November 11, is between me and Tim Warner, Pluralsight author and Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management. The topic of our conversation: On-premises to the Azure cloud: How to evolve your mindset. We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

Many customers think they should design their Azure migration to mirror their on-premises environment. This speaks to a huge fallacy — that designing for the cloud requires a significant paradigm shift from designing for on-prem. Warner has lots of practical guidance to share around this topic. In addition, Warner (and I) are just back from Microsoft Ignite 2019, so we’ll have lots to talk about from Microsoft’s biggest IT pro event.

If you’ve got Azure and/or on-prem and cloud questions, Warner will likely have the answers. If there are any specific topics or scenarios you’d like him to cover, make sure to chime in ahead of time.

Also: If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected]. (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
