We’re in the midst of launching some new Windows Azure workshops, and here are the first two events, hot off the press, so to speak. We’ve also got a great new online conference coming up – details to follow very soon.

Online Windows Azure Platform – Accelerated Training Workshop

If you’ve got some good practical experience with Visual Studio and want to do some more practical exercises, take a look at our online “Windows Azure Platform – Accelerated Training Workshop”, uniquely delivered over a two week period from 11 - 25 October , combining 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.

This course is aimed at software developers with at least 6 months practical experience using Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2010.
