I wanted to bring your attention to a series of free, half-day sessions on how the cloud is changing the way business gets done. These sessions are being held in several Microsoft Offices across the East Coast (unfortunately none in the Northeast at this point) and are sponsored by Bit-Wizards and StorSimple in conjunction with our Windows Azure partner team. The presentations and panel discussions will center on enterprise solutions enabled via Windows Azure, with a particular focus on application economics and return on investment.

The event schedule looks like this, and you can register via the links below:
