Ahoy there - and welcome to The Cloud Pirate!

The Cloud Pirate is an AI-backed cloud community content aggregator, which ingests over 100+ sources of cloud community content, from blog posts to YouTube and podcast releases.

Running periodically, the aggregator checks through our list of content sources, looking for new posts. When a new post it found, it is both summarised and tagged using the Azure Open AI Service. The post summary, along with links to its source and credits to the author, is then published to multiple social media platforms (see below).

Oh, and the AI uses a pirate persona - because, well.... why not?!
