Atlanta .Net User Group Meeting - Azure

Our speakers for this month are Tom Fuller ( and Lutful Khandker (Microsoft). Tom is a 6 year Microsoft veteran and former Microsoft MVP. He has been working exclusively with Windows Azure for over three years. In his current role, Tom works almost daily with customers looking to design and deploy new and existing solutions into the cloud.

Lutful has been with Microsoft for over three years and before that was an architect at Coca-Cola. Lutful has also been working with Windows Azure for 2 years and focuses on the most complex solutions that are being built by ISVs and Microsoft Partners.

Azure Quick Hits - Building Apps for the Cloud

In this session, join Tom and Lutful to walk through some of the cool new capabilities in Windows Azure and how you might choose to use one over the other in your development projects. The session will begin with a brief discussion about key design concepts that apply to all cloud projects. Then Lutful will dive into mobile solutions and how those can be built with Windows Azure. That will be followed by a deep dive into the technical criteria that will help you decide what is the best way to deploy and maintain your websites in Windows Azure. Last but not least, we'll explore the new capabilities of SQL Databases and how the premium mode might help overcome those dreaded transient conditions. The session will include demonstrations and tons of Q&A.

    I am a recruiter for a company, N3, in Atlanta that is looking for an Azure Technical Specialist. This is a contract opportunity with great long term potential and offers a remote working environment. We have been working with Microsoft to help sell Azure in the B2B space. This person would be in a technical support type of role answering questions and figuring out how to solve problems for existing customers using Azure. If anyone is interested in finding out more, I can be reached via email at [masked] Thank you for letting me post on your discussion.

    I should have said "five stars" vice "five starts". BTW - after raving to my boss about this, he wants the slideshow. Any chance of getting hold of that?

    I'm a partner in a consulting firm that has a few products, and we're looking for someone interested in a long-term freelance opportunity to help us update these products. Is this group and this meeting an appropriate place to do this? I want to be sure I don't accidentally violate any guidelines of the meeting. Thanks!

    Five starts. Both of those gents did a great job of hitting the audience. I felt at home (pizza didn't hurt) and it felt relevant. Lots of material to follow up on but a great start!
