Shane Baldacchino – https://twitter.com/sbaldacchino
Chief Architect at Microsoft

A super passionate technologist with a proven track record in delivering business outcomes and driving thought leadership around modern IT architectures.

I have significant experience in cloud (Azure & AWS) at both the hands-on level but more importantly acting as a thought-leader around future state architectures and how to leverage these ‘lego blocks’ to provide business value. From the whiteboard through to the code base, I am able to dive deep on the tools yet deliver messaging from developer through to a CxO audience. My experience spans from startups through to FAANG at both employee and architectural exposure.
