The other Silver ADDY® for work in self-promotion went to web developer JD Compton for his video production work in the “Journey To The Cloud”
webisode. Bit-Wizards was an early adopter of Microsoft’s Window Azure cloud offering and, as a result, has gained national exposure for their work including being selected as one of the first Azure Circle partners. Bit-Wizards was the subject of a Microsoft case study on which the “Journey To The Cloud” video was based. JD’s work on the video involved many hours of directing, camera work, and production.
