This is the second of two sets of Windows Azure-related events hitting select cities on the US East Coast in Spring 2011. The other is the Azure Deep Dive with Jeffrey Richter.
Please join myself, Brian Hitney, and Jim O’Neil for the “Azure Tech Jam”!
You’ve heard about cloud computing and already know it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread – and maybe you’ve already attended a Microsoft Azure Boot Camp or other event introducing you to the cloud and detailing the various parts of the Windows Azure platform. Well we’ll do that too… in the first half hour! The rest of the time we’ll have a bit of fun with Azure by taking a look at some cool demos and poking under the hood. We’ll then take a look at some of the innovative uses of cloud computing that Windows Azure customers have already produced.
After lunch, we’ll introduce the genesis and creation of the Rock Paper Azure Challenge… AND run our very own Challenge on-site, exclusive to attendees only, complete with prizes like an Xbox 360/Kinect bundle, a stand-alone Kinect, and a $50 gift certificate. This is an interactive way to learn about developing and deploying to the cloud, with a little friendly competition thrown in for fun.
So bring your laptop, Windows Azure account credentials and a sense of adventure and join us for this FREE, full-day event as myself, Brian and Jim take you “to the cloud!”
