MSDN UNPLUGGED Events continue in February 09 with South Island locations. We will be sharing principles, practices, patterns and tools announced at PDC in October 2008.

Using computers in the cloud can make a great deal of sense. Instead of provisioning part or all of your infrastructure you can instead exploit Internet-accessible servers and let others worry about keeping systems up to scratch. But why just stop at the cloud? Some applications may have their code and data both operating in the cloud, others may run inside an organisation storing data in the cloud or relying on other cloud infrastructure services. Applications that run on desktops and mobile devices can use services in the cloud to synchronise information across many systems or in other ways. Whatever approach makes sense exploiting and extending the cloud’s capabilities can open up new choices for applications hosting, storage and interoperability.

Come and join us to start your applications journey to the cloud and beyond. Presented by Microsoft Developer Advisor Mike Zeff and Microsoft Architect Mark Carroll. We will be giving away PDC 2008 Top Session DVDs to attendees too.
