New Data Driven Episode: Rimma Nehme on CosmosDB, Planet-Scale Applications, and Selling Door-to-Door


This week on Data Driven, Frank and I are honored to interview Rimma Nehme, CosmosDB Architect at Microsoft. We had a fantastic time chatting about CosmosDB, open-source, reading, and what (or whom, rather) Dr. Nehme finds really important. As always there are movie references: Blues Brothers and Spiderman are quoted this week.
