Abstract
On December 2nd- 4th we are holding an Azure Bizspark Start-up Camp in our Brisbane office in the lead up to the launch of our Innovation Centre. This unique opportunity will showcase the potential when Government, Incubators, Universities and Microsoft come together to help Startups.

 

 

Microsoft's Windows Azure Dev Camps will allow you to learn about the Windows Azure Platform and the foundation concepts through comprehensive presentations, hands-on labs, and supported development time.

 

 

The first day will cover training in depth thanks to Azure MVP Steve Nagy and the second two days will be an opportunity for you to work in groups to build your own projects with the support of business & technical experts. The event culminates in a pitch to a panel of judges & investors who will decide on the overall winner. Prizes include xBox Kinect Packs.

 

 

Note that hands on Labs will be available if you do not have a business idea you would like to build but still want to test out your new knowledge.

Things to bring
Here are some personal items you might want to bring to the Windows Azure Dev Camp.
