2015 Global Azure Bootcamp - Watertown

Join your fellow cloud-ies at the Watertown edition of the 2015 Global Azure Bootcamp. Now in its third year, the Bootcamp brings together technologists at over 150 locations across the world for a day's worth of hands-on sessions focused on leveraging the capabilities of Microsoft Azure.

The Boston area will play host to two events - this one at Blue Metal Architects at Watertown Square in Watertown, and another at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge.

Plan to bring your laptop and provision at least a free trial Azure account BEFORE you come to the event (see below for details).  It is important to come prepared: getting set up is not terribly difficult, but it takes a while for things to run.  Additionally, we'll make use of this account early in the day and frequently, so setting up ahead of time will allow you to get the most out of the event.


1.  Doors open at 8:30 – fuel up with some food and coffee, grab a seat, get on the wifi, warm up your twitter account (#GlobalAzure and  #bostonazure).

2.  Bootcamp activities begins promptly at 9:15 - Welcome / About The Day / Start Your Engines

3.  Azure Content! - We will all deploy to Azure very early in the day, so be ready!, and we’ll cover many topics - some briefly, some with labs - VMs (IaaS), Web Sites (PaaS), messaging and IoT, devops, disaster recovery…

4.  ~ 12:30 – Lunch (pizza, provided – we'll have some vegetarian and vegan pizza options)

5.  Back to Azure Content!

6.  4:30ish – wrap up content, next steps, SWAG (and, yes, have a LOT of SWAG)

7.  5:00pm – done!


1. Microsoft Azure Account

To get the most out of the day you will need a functioning Azure account. If you have an MSDN subscription (Pro or higher), you may already have an account; otherwise, obtain a a FREE 1-Month TRIAL

2. Install Visual Studio 2013. Download the Community Edition if you don't already have it installed.

3. Install the Windows Azure SDK for Visual Studio 2013 development.

4. Optionally install other SDKs for other languages and tools

    What a great day. Learned a lot about how to collet and manage manufacturing data. Jim and his staff did a superior job. Thank you.

    Great orientation on Azure. The mixture of SMEs on many topics like network, SQL server, automation, message queues, etc was very valuable and I found I could ask and get answers to any questions.

    Very well done. I have been developing in Azure over a year now but have not touched certain areas. This Meetup went into some of these areas at a pretty good level. The presenters were knowledgeable and did a good job of show-casing what Azure has to offer at the 500 foot level. Thanks!
