I released my 1st book on Windows Azure & Silverlight integration for enterprise applications https://davidburela.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/my-first-book-has-been-published-azure-silverlight-integration/

Have completed a Bachelor of Computer Science, a Masters of Computer Science and a MBA (Masters of Business Administration). I use this unique mixture technology and business degrees to look at software in a different way.
