In an exclusive interview with Agus, we asked him what inspired him to write these books.

I want to share experiences about Windows Azure and MongoDB programming. Currently, there is little information about Windows Azure in Indonesia language. I hope this book can help people especially Indonesian people to learn about Windows Azure. As for MongoDB for VB.NET ebook, most of the MongoDB community provides sample and illustration in C#. Now I would like to show how VB.NET can access MongoDB easily.

The Technical Guideline for Windows Azure is a book that describes how to get started in Windows Azure. Starting from registration to managing Windows Azure. It covers : Windows Azure SQL, Windows Azure Storage, Web Sites, Virtual Machine, Virtual Network, Service Bus, Media Service, Mobile Server and Windows Azure Hadoop (Big Data). This book is suitable for beginners who want to know more about Windows Azure.

The MongoDB for VB.NET  is a simple reference about accessing MongoDB database using VB.NET. It provides many illustrations in the code. It covers CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations in MongoDB database programming, working with binary and image, embedded document and LINQ for MongoDB. This book is suitable for beginners who want to know how to program for VB.NET application with accessing MongoDB database.”
