Happy Thanksgiving to those in the United States that are celebrating. It’s the time here in the states where we enjoy food, family, and lots of sitting on the couch. Because of the holiday, I put together this week’s news a day earlier but don’t worry there’s so much to catch up on. If your post didn’t make it in, just reach out next week to be part.

You can check out the big announcement at the Azure Updates blog or this Microsoft news article, “Microsoft announces “Digital AmBEtion” plan to accelerate growth and innovation in Belgium, including its intent to establish a datacenter region in the country.”
