We have been working together with Microsoft to set up a training day about Windows Azure in September.
As you surely know, Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform and infrastructure. It provides both platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.
In order to best cover the wealth of possibilities that Azure offers for your application or infrastructure we need more than a simple meetup, so we are putting together a coding day, where you can come and learn about Azure, code, share experiences with others. Michael Epprecht from Microsoft will be there to present Azure and answer questions.
The rough agenda for the day will be:
09:00 Arrival & Introduction
09:15 Setup & Azure subscriptions handover & registration (Michael)
09:45 Introductory Presentations
11:00 Individual / Group Coding
13:00 Lunch & Code
14:30 Individual / Group Coding
16:00 Presentation of projects
The event will be held at the PartnerRe offices in Zurich (Bellerivestrasse 36, 8034 Zurich) on the 21st of September at 09:00. It's a Saturday, but we hope that you think it is worth getting out of bed for.
