Amazon Web Services and Windows Azure

Amazon Web Services and Windows Azure

Let's compare and contrast the cloud offerings by Amazon and Microsoft, and time permitting, dig into the C# code necessary to leverage various pieces of each platform. We'll look at Elastic Beanstalk, S3, Git Deploy, hosted databases, virtual machines, and permissions ... provided we have a strong internet connection. Rob will leave us with a solid foundation for evaluating these and other cloud offerings as our industry transitions into the cloud.

    Is there any chance there will be a webcast? I got my schedule changed so I will not be able to make it but would love to watch a live stream if possible.
