I’ve had a great time talking with the folks from MS Dev Show where I could give more background on how and why TwinsOrNot was created and some basic level concepts around our Azure Machine Learning platform: http://msdevshow.com/
Well that was a fun ride. I want to start this post by saying thanks for the overwhelmingly positive feedback I’ve gotten from so many of you.

The site was a huge success and was used by millions of people. We are now having some smaller events across the world following Build and […]
