Azure Camp

Cloud camp is back again. Last year we had a very successful azure camp and we would like to repeat the event this year. If you've never used Azure or you're looking for a refresher then this is the place for you. The event will be hands on and we'll have people there to help you out. 

We will be providing a slightly healthy lunch and refreshment during the day. 

We'll be covering 

-An Introduction to Azure: we'll talk about where there are data centers, a bit about cloud computing in general and do a quick overview of the various azure services. 

-Azure Virtual Machines: virtual machines are the lowest level of service available on azure. We'll look at images, provisioning and talk briefly about how to configure VMs.

<hands on>

-Azure Websites: How to quickly deploy a website, how to scale a website, how to integrate with source control tools

<hands on>

-Azure Storage: How to store data on azure, where it actually gets stored, all sorts of fun things related to table storage. 

<hands on>

Prepare yourself to get hands-on:

· Please come with a laptop, an active Windows Azure account and Visual Studio installed.

· MSDN Subscribers, did you know that you receive up to $150/month in Windows Azure credits and reduced rates? Activate your Windows Azure benefits using this link. Also, don’t forget to install Visual Studio 2013 from the MSDN Subscriber downloads website.

· If you’re not an MSDN Subscriber, activate a one-month Windows Azure trial subscription ($200 Credit) and Install Visual Studio Express 2013 at no cost

      Assembly is in a restricted parking zone, or has a bunch of 2h zones on Saturday. There is a paid lot about 1/2 block north along 14th street. If you want free, there is a high school about 1 block north and 3 blocks to the west, with free parking along the perimeter. It's not a 2h zone or in the restricted parking zone.

      I'll happily pay full day parking in this weather :)

    Despite the cold, I'm looking forward to this as Azure just keeps getting better, but I will be dressing warm.

    I must withdraw as well. Sustained a back injury yesterday and sitting for long periods is too excruciating right now. It's a shame, I was really looking fwd to this event. I wish there was a webcast :)

      Or come play with a different language completely! Azure has some great nodejs support and there is even support for PHP.

    See you all .NExT time!
