On Friday, August 19th, from 12 noon to 6 p.m. ET, a number of Azure and SQL Azure experts will cover various aspects of developing and working with the Windows Azure platform.  If you haven’t yet had a chance to immerse yourself in Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, this is a convenient (and FREE) way to do so.
