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 (https://twitter.com/codingoutloud)).

Due to coronavirus, Boston Azure and North Boston Azure are suspending all in-person events until further notice. This include regularly scheduled monthly events and the Global Azure 2020 event scheduled for Sat April 25.

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

One such virtual event under consideration is the Global Azure 2020 event scheduled for Sat April 25, but a lot would need to happen and go right before then to make it possible. At this point, watch this space for updates, but treat it as "possible but not yet likely" for now.

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.

Sincerely,

Bill - @codingoutloud
Veronika - @veronika_dev1
Jason - @haleyjason

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 (https://bostonazure.github.io/codeofconduct.html). Your feedback (https://github.com/bostonazure/bostonazure.github.io/issues) is welcome.

We are currently hosting meeting signups on Meetup.com/bostonazure (https://meetup.com/bostonazure), but you can also find our top-level site through the simpler URL bostonazure.org (http://bostonazure.org/).

You can also find us on Twitter as @bostonazure (https://twitter.com/bostonazure).

And feel free to join our Slack community at https://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 (https://twitter.com/haleyjason)), which meets in Burlington, MA.
