Have you ever set foot in the kitchen with a certain hunger and found that you had no clue
as to how to make that dish? At such a time a cookbook is a wonderful thing. That's why I
appreciate this concept of a cookbook for workflows and services. At Microsoft when we build
products they are often chocked full of little known but wonderful capabilities and guys like
Hammad and Rick are just the sort of chefs that have what it takes to make you successful
