I have left Microsoft and this blog is no longer under my control. All of the content should remain for some time however and any new updates can be found at http://davedev.net.

Cloud Computing User Group
Join us for the second local meeting of the Cloud Computing User Group. At this meeting, we will be learning about how Cloud Storage works in the Azure cloud computing platform. We'll see how to store and retrieve BLOBs, queues, and data tables in code. We'll also see how to manage large amounts of data in a scalable way..
Who Should Attend? Cloud computing has huge implications for both developers and business people. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor and be part of the community that helps pioneer this exciting new area.
February 2 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Microsoft Malvern Offices 45 Liberty Blvd Malvern, PA
Please take a moment to register here so we can plan properly. Pizza will be served at 5:30 and the presentation / demo will begin shortly after.
Does cloud computing offer anything compelling for you, your business or your customers?
Cloud computing with Windows Azure provides technologists with new options for where applications reside, how applications behave, and the business models that drive them.
Cloud computing eliminates the need to predict traffic levels, purchase hardware or hosting capacity in advance, and keep os's patched. Applications are given the capacity they need on demand. You only pay for computing and storage you use.
Some of the most difficult and costly things to achieve in I.T. such as high availability and ensuring scalability are no longer headaches the enterprise has to deal with. Scalability, reliability, and high availability come with the platform automatically.
Developers no longer have to make a choice between the benefits of what can be delivered to users via the web versus traditional on-premises software. Microsoft offers the opportunity for developers to offer both with a software-plus-services approach. It is an industry shift that combines services on the Web with client and server software to deliver the best of both worlds.
