Microsoft Azure is a highly-scalable cloud computing platform. But what if my business is built on Linux and Oracle? What if I build iPhone or Android apps for a living? What if I’m a PHP developer or Java developer? Can Azure help me and my products and services?
In this presentation, I will show you Microsoft Azure services that can improve your application or infrastructure, even if you are working exclusively in Open Source or non-Microsoft technologies.
