Spend Two Days with Windows Azure

One of our Windows Azure Training Workshops will get you hands-on with the latest Azure technologies and development tools. There will be presentations and hands-on labs, so you'll get practical experience all day long.

We'll cover the basics and beyond, so whether you're new to Windows Azure or you want to try out its newly-released services, you'll get what you came for. We'll start with the basics, and build up to more advanced topics throughout this two-day event.

The target audience for these events include Developers, Architects, and Development leads – and the sessions are targeted around the 300-level.
