I’m very pleased to share that we will be holding a launch event for the Windows Azure Platform in Australia on February 23rd 2010 in Sydney.  We are also planning a local roadshow around this date, including a stop in Melbourne on February 25th.

Full details forthcoming soon, including our visiting speakers – watch this space.  In the meantime save the date in your diaries!

Commercial availability of Windows Azure in Australia is planned for the March 2010 timeframe as detailed in the official Azure FAQ.   One of the great things for Australian developers about being in the second launch wave is that we get a few extra months of free local access to the full Community Technology Preview platform so go and get started and let us know what you create!
