MSDN Events Presents: Understanding Azure
Cloud Development is one of the fastest growing trends in our industry. Don’t get left behind. In this event, Rob Bagby and Bruno Terkaly will provide an overview of developing with Windows Azure. They will cover both where and why you should consider taking advantage of the various Windows Azure’s services in your application, as well as providing you with a great head start on how to accomplish it. This half-day event will be split up into 3 sections. The first section will cover the benefits and nuances of hosting web applications and services in Windows Azure, as well as taking advantage of SQL Azure. The second section will cover the ins and outs of Windows Azure storage, while the third will illustrate the Windows Azure App Fabric.

Please continue to send me your ideas for items to include in this monthly newsletter. Some have requested more information about the different roles in the developer & platform evangelism (DPE) division at Microsoft, which I’m happy to do!
