Here’s cloud access
Mostly hosted on University campuses across the West Region, these DevCamps provide both student and professional developers the opportunity to choose a technology and start learning and building applications for it. Camps covering the web, phone, and cloud platforms will be presented simultaneously.
Developer Camps (DevCamps for short) are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. Attendees learn from experts in a low-key, interactive way and then get hands-on time to apply what they’ve learned.
At the Azure DevCamps, you’ll learn what’s new in developing cloud solutions using Windows Azure. Windows Azure is an internet-scale cloud computing and services platform hosted in Microsoft data centers. Windows Azure provides an operating system and a set of developer services used to build cloud-based solutions. The Azure DevCamp is a great place to get started with Windows Azure development or to learn what’s new with the latest Windows Azure features.
As developers, you keep hearing a lot about HTML5, but many don’t know what it actually means or is truly capable of. If you want to learn about it, your choices are limited; you can either pick up a book or attend an expensive conference that often only scratches the surface. The HTML5 Web Camp is an opportunity to connect with designers and developers and show you what’s possible, and how you can start using it today. HTML5 WebCamp is a completely free event, and will start with demos and presentations, and will end with hands on lab sessions. The HTML5 Camp will allow you to walk through materials and get your questions answered! Space is limited.
Take your apps to the next level at the Windows Phone Dev Camp. We’ll be covering how to bring the cloud to your app by consuming external APIs, add UX polish with Expression Blend, reach new markets through globalization and localization, and keep your app running at peak performance through advanced debugging and testing. In the afternoon, we’ll break into labs to reinforce what we covered, and offer a chance to present your application for a chance to win in our application competition.
