Also, as part of the Tech Days series, there are 6 Windows Azure Bootcamps in the UK.

So if you are a academic looking to take advantage of cloud computing, but you haven’t yet taken the plunge, this free half-day of training is the quickest way to get up-to-speed with Microsoft’s offering; Windows Azure. We’ll take you from knowing nothing about the cloud to actually having written some code, deployed it to the cloud service and made a simple application available on the public Internet.

You will also get all the information you need to get up to speed with Windows Azure in a packaged and compressed form, ready for your consumption, without having to trawl through books, blogs and articles on your own.

There will be experienced people available to guide you through each exercise. Once you have the basics in place, you’ll be off and running.
