What we're about

Temporarily meeting as “Virtual Boston Azure” due to coronavirus, but you can still keep track and sign up to attend on this site.
Boston Azure and North Boston Azure have suspended all in-person events until further notice. Click Read more for details.

Boston Azure is a community-run group with the goal of learning about cloud computing with the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform. We have been meeting since October 2009, making us the oldest such Azure-focused community group in the world. The group was founded by Bill Wilder (@codingoutloud).
*Due to coronavirus, Boston Azure and North Boston Azure are suspending all in-person events until further notice.

*We are considering options around full-day virtual events, but have no specific plans at this point.

*If you have any questions or feedback you can reach out to @bostonazure on twitter - or to any of us directly via twitter (handles below) via Meetup messaging.

The group is run by volunteers. So far for all the events we've hosted over the years, we've managed to provide them for free to attendees. This is in large part to Microsoft offering free space at NERD where we've held the vast majority of our events, to MIT for help with some of our bootcamp events, but also to the occasional meeting/event sponsor.
We are introducing a Code of Conduct. Your feedback is welcome.
We are currently hosting meeting signups on Meetup.com/bostonazure, but you can also find our top-level site through the simpler URL bostonazure.org.
You can also find us on Twitter as @bostonazure.
And feel free to join our Slack community at bit.ly/baslack.
Boston Azure usually meets in the Boston/Cambridge area. You may also be interested in the North Boston Azure group, run by Jason Haley (@haleyjason), which meets in Burlington, MA.
