Thanks to our friends at Oakwood Systems, I have a series of free, hands-on “kick start” events to tell you about. Here’s the text from an e-mail I just received:
What is the best way to determine if Windows Azure might be a fit for your organization?
Microsoft is offering your organization the opportunity to learn more about Windows Azure in a hands-on lab environment through our upcoming Kick Start Training Events. Developed with Microsoft, and delivered by one of Oakwood’s certified Azure architects, this training will help you put Azure in context for your own organization.
Those who attend will learn how to build a web application that runs in Windows Azure, how to sign up for free time in the cloud, and how to build a typical web application using the same ASP.NET tools that are being used today. We’ll review the types of applications that make sense to move to the cloud, and those that do not, and we’ll have plenty of interactive time for Q&A.
This is a full day session, with lunch included, and attendees will need to bring a laptop. Details of the laptop requirements are on the registration site. The download site for the session prerequisites is http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/net/ and click on the green install button.
Whether you’ll be joining us yourself or not, please feel free to forward this invitation to your development team members. All are welcome (until we run out of seats, of course). Click on your preferred city and date to the right to register. These sessions are being offered to you at no charge, so we hope you will choose to leverage a session to advance your organization’s Azure knowledge and planning.
