The Azure Group (TAG) provides a forum for IT professionals to discuss and share expertise in understanding the cloud technologies available through the Microsoft Azure platform offerings. As organizations look to add cloud technologies to their suite of IT solutions, new technologies, new infrastructure opportunities and challenges arise. Started in Toronto and expanding across Canada, the goal of TAG is to share real world experiences and provide education opportunities as they relate to the Microsoft Azure cloud offerings. Our membership includes IT practitioners, managers, network administrators, students, and anyone who is interesting in learning more about implementing or leveraging the Azure services. Membership is free, simply sign up for event emails in the box below and show up to our event. No event registration required.

Presenters: Callon Campbell and Arlan Nugara
Arlan Nugara is a Cloud Solution Architect that speaks widely on Azure and DevOps.
