Now that the Falcon Heavy has flown.

In this episode of .NET Rocks, Carl and Richard geek out!

Richard talks to Carl about the amazing Falcon Heavy launch – what worked, what didn’t and why did it take so darn long to fly? The discussion dives into how the plans for the Heavy evolved, affected by the evolution of the Falcon 9. The impact of the launch is interesting – is it a new phase of spaceflight for humanity? The Heavy just barely sneaks into the super heavy lift class, and it’s flight has caused a bit of a kerfuffle – both Russia and China have announced new super heavy lift rockets.

I’ve hinted at this on the Data Driven podcast a couple of times, but this week, it’s official: I’m back at Microsoft. This time as a Big Data and Artificial Intelligence Technical Sales Professional.

What does that mean, exactly?

I help companies achieve more by getting the most out of their data with analytics and AI.

Needless to say, I am super-excited to carry a blue badge again.
