David Burela works full time as a "Technical Evangelist" for Infragistics.
His first book was released this year, it covers how to combine Windows Azure with Microsoft Silverlight 5.
He also holds Microsoft certifications making him an Azure MCPD and a Silverlight MCTS. At university he did a Bachelor of Computer Science, a Masters of Computer Science and a MBA (Masters of Business Administration). He uses this unique mixture of technical and business skills to help the clients he consults for.
David loves researching the latest cutting edge technologies and frameworks and is heavily invested in Windows Azure, Silverlight and Windows Phone 7. This passion for researching and learning sees him helping out with the developer community. He ran a local .Net user group for 3 years and currently runs the Melbourne Microsoft UX user group. While running user groups is enjoyable, presenting at them is more fun. He keeps his presentation skills sharp by delivering talks every few months on a variety of topics.
David has been recognised for his abilities and contributions with numerous awards. In 2007 David was acknowledged for his contributions to the community and was a state finalist for the Australian government's "Young Australian of the Year" award.
In 2008 David entered into a global programming competition run by Microsoft and competed against winning teams from over 80 different countries. David and his team won the global competition with their cloud based agriculture system that would assist farmers and growers in drought stricken regions. In 2010 David entered into another Microsoft programming competition, this time for Windows Phone 7, and came runner up for his submission. The phone application notified residents of Sydney Australia if it is safe to swim at the local beaches today.
