We are currently working to make sure we have the right local resources in place to help ISVs (and developers in general) get to grips with the opportunities and challenges of Cloud Computing with the Windows Azure Platform.
I will endeavour to keep this post up to date over the year – bookmark it now.
FREE One Day Windows Azure Briefings for Microsoft Partners - “Second Monday of Every Month", starting 11th October – designed for Business decision makers, CTOs, senior architects and system designers. The sessions are designed to help ISVs and SIs understand the opportunities the Windows Azure Platform offers, how it is being used, discuss how they can move forward, and what resources are available to help them.
FREE UK Windows Azure Online Conference 8th October – three track online conference with something for those new to the platform and those already experienced with Azure. For developers and architects.
FREE 2 Weeks of Windows Azure Platform training delivered online – 11th to 25th October – instructor led sessions (delivered virtually over Live Meeting) with independent distance learning, email support and access to hands-on practical exercises. The training provides delegates with an opportunity to gain insight into the nature and benefits of the Windows Azure Platform. For developers and architects who still develop.
Two days of classroom based training in London on the Windows Azure Platform for £100 (Sep through April) - instructor-led workshop provides delegates with an early opportunity to gain insight into the nature and benefits of the Windows Azure Platform. Delivered through workshop style presentations and hands-on lab exercises, the workshop will focus on three key services – Windows Azure, SQL Azure and AppFabric. For developers and architects who still develop.
Please also let us know through Microsoft Platform Ready if and when you intend to build an application using the Windows Azure Platform. Or indeed if you already have (Well done). It really helps us better understand the demand out there which directly impacts how we will plan the next 12 months of activities around the Windows Azure Platform.
