For the Tue Dec 13 event, we have expanded the meeting time and topics.
We will start a little early so we can simulcast a live talk from the Microsoft campus in Redmond (part of the Learn Windows Azure event (http://www.learnwindowsazureevent.com/)).
Then - live, and in-person - we have a fantastic cast of five speakers, all from BlueMetal Architects (http://www.bluemetal.com/). The theme of the talks is centered on Using Windows Azure to extend your applications to Mobile devices, but - as you can see - it dives into a number of related topics.
