WinAzure_rgbListen up Cloud Cadets! On Saturday, October 2nd, Noel Tan from the Calgary PASS Chapter will host a Windows Azure Boot Camp! The purpose of this FREE boot camp is simple: To bring you up-to-speed on developing for Windows Azure, Microsoft’s flexible cloud–computing platform that lets you focus on solving business problems and addressing customer needs.
