The UK's only Cloud user group

The Cloud is the hot topic. You can’t escape hearing about it everywhere you go.
Cloud Evening is the UK’s only cloud-focussed user group. Cloud Evening replaces UKAzureNet, with a new objective to cover all aspects of Cloud Computing, across all platforms, technologies and providers. We want to create a community for developers and architects to come together, learn, share stories and share experiences. Each event we’ll bring you two speakers talking about what’s hot in the world of Cloud.
Our first event was a great success and we're now having the second exciting instalment. We're covering running third party applications on Azure and federated identity management.

We will, of course, keep you fed and watered with beer and pizza. Spaces are limited so please sign-up now!
Agenda

6.00pm – Registration

6.30pm – Windows Azure and running third-party software - using Elevated Privileges, Full IIS or VM Roles  (by @MarkRendle): We all know how simple it is to run your own applications on Azure, but how about existing software? Using the RavenDB document database software as an example, Mark will look at three ways to get 3rd-party software running on Azure, including the use of Start-up Tasks, Full IIS support and VM Roles, with a discussion of the pros and cons of each approach.

7.30pm – Beer and Pizza.

8.00pm – Federated identity – integrating Active Directory with Azure-based apps and Office 365  (by Steve Plank): Steve will cover off how to write great applications which leverage your existing on-premises Active Directory, along with providing seamless access to Office 365.

We hope you can join us for what looks set to be a great evening. Register now
