Scott Klein

Scott Klein is a Microsoft Data Platform Senior Technical Evangelist who lives and breathes data. His passion for data technologies brought him to Microsoft in 2011 which has allowed him to travel all over the globe evangelizing SQL Server and Microsoft’s cloud data services. Prior to Microsoft Scott was one of the first 4 SQL Azure MVPs, and even though those don’t exist anymore, he still claims it. Scott has authored several books that talk about SQL Server and Windows Azure SQL Database and continues to look for ways to help developers and companies grok the benefits of cloud computing. He also thinks “grok” is an awesome word.
