Microsoft Azure Double Feature

  • Aug 20, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Azure Double Feature

- Microsoft Azure Technical Overview.

- SQL Azure Latest Developments.

At our August 20th meeting we will have a double feature:

1. Microsoft Azure Technical Overview by Bill Zack

Bill is a Cloud Architect and co-founder of the group. For those new to Microsoft Azure he will be presenting a technical overview of the platform and the services that it provides.  For those of you who heard our present on that topic to this group last year all we can say is a lot has happened since then. :-)

2. SQL Azure Latest Developments by George Huey

For those of you who are already acquainted with Azure and are interested in Microsoft's Database as a Service offering (SQL Azure), we will have an update on that service presented by George Huey.  George is a Principal Architect for the Developer & Platform Evangelism Group at Microsoft. In that capacity he works with companies to help them understand new and emerging technologies and how these technologies can be applied to solve their business problems. He is also the author of the SQLAzureMW and SQLAzureFedMW tools.

As a special added incentive to show up early the first 10 attendees will receive a free one month’s subscription to Pluralsight that will grant them full access to hundreds of online technical training video courses.

Note that we have moved our meeting permanently to the 3rd Wednesday of the month in order to avoid conflicts with other user groups who have members that might want to attend both meetings.

If you find the doors locked after PM call me at[masked] and we will get you in.

See you at the meeting.
