Erwin Staal

Azure Architect
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.


Crafting a nice piece of software and run that in the most optimal and secure way on the Azure Cloud, all deployed in a fully automated fashion.


Explaining both the larger goals as well as the small, difficult details in an accessible way. Quickly grasping new concepts.

My source of inspiration

Travel, music, working with or watching others create beautiful things in the cloud.

This makes me happy

Working with the latest tech, drinking a nice, dark beer, going for a run.

My ultimate Epic Shit moment

Giving a session on Architecture and DevOps on the Microsft Techdays in Helsinki at the main stage!

The song that gets me started

Coldplay – Yellow
