Please advise that there is a $5.00 donation at the door:

Session 1 – “Getting Started with Windows Azure”  - In this session we will introduce the Windows Azure platform, and walk through building an application that can be hosted on Windows Azure.  Well cover the differences between web roles and worker roles, and introduce the various types of storage available. 

Session 2 – “Using the Windows Azure APIs”  - Developers writing applications that run in Windows Azure have access to a great set of APIs for accessing storage, inspecting their environment, and instrumentation.  In this session we will review the various APIs available. 

Bret is a Microsoft Developer Evangelist in Southern California focusing on the Azure family of products, services and technologies.

    This was an excellent meetup. Bret Stateham's presentation was much better than I had anticipated. I would recommend that if you get a chance to hear him talk about Azure, go. He is very knowledgeable and an very good public speaker.

    Azure looks pretty difficult to get going however Bret made it seem easy. Excellent presentation in a perfect environment at BlankSpaces.
