FAUG - "Azure Market in Finland" panel (LIVE) at Microsoft house

Needs a location

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately due to the current COVID situation and related meetup restrictions in place, we are postponing this event for the time being.

But fear not: This panel will still happen, and we're working on securing a new date (hopefully in early spring). We are excited to see you all live and will inform everyone through this channel when more details are available.

In the meantime, the event timing will be changed to a temporary placeholder value and RSVPs are closed. They will be reopened as soon as possible.

Thank you everybody for understanding!

For any questions, please reach out to us :)

Best regards,

FAUG organizers


Would you like to know more about what kind of companies work with Azure? What is really being done in the projects, and what kind of projects they are? Are the companies using freelancers, or not? Are they working remotely, or will they be working at the client's location post-Covid?

FAUG starts live events with a panel on the state of Azure Market in Finland. The purpose of this panel is to create transparency and educate technical actors, such as freelancers, developers, and other experts, about what kind of projects and things are being done by the companies in the panel.

  • What type of projects do you do in Azure?
  • What is your typical cloud project like, describe the case and technologies?
  • What is your typical team size and composition in projects, describe team member roles and project management?
