I’ve put a little over 1,000 miles on my car with a drive up to Edinburgh and Leeds to deliver a session on Azure as part of the fowa tour 2009. The tour is going really well, lots of interesting folk at the events, lots of discussion around cloud computing, web design, and some really great speakers. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how many people were already using .NET, and there is a lot of interest in Azure, ASP.NET and more recently, BizSpark.

One of the fun things about these events is the way you can get real time feedback on the event and sessions, and a handle on what people are thinking about, through Twitter, as most attendees seemed to Tweet the entire time :-) Its always nice to get good feedback on what we are doing (I’m @ScroffTheBad):

Edinburgh and Leeds are still lovely cities to hold these events:

I’ve posted my tour photos on Flickr, but my favourite has to be this:

Don’t miss out on the final two tour dates in Cambridge and Bristol next week.
