What we’re about

βœ… We are hosting in-person events again! Stay tuned both at the Boston Azure event site (where you are now) and at the North Boston Azure event site. We plan to continue Virtual Boston Azure events in parallel to in-person events.

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).

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 have introduced a Code of Conduct. Your feedback is welcome.

We are currently hosting meeting signups on, but you can also find our top-level site through the simpler URL

You can also find us on Twitter as @bostonazure.

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.
