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.
-Azure Websites: How to quickly deploy a website, how to scale a website, how to integrate with source control tools
-Azure Storage: How to store data on azure, where it actually gets stored, all sorts of fun things related to table storage.
