It consists of a day of sessions and labs based on the Windows Azure Training Kit. The event has been originally designed by 5 Windows Azure MVPs in order to benefit the local community members and teach essential Windows Azure skills and know-how.

    I can do about couple things. I would start with either logging in Azure with Enterprise Library, or using blob storage to store images for your web site. It will be .net oriented.
