We have two great Windows Azure talks for Nov 15: Windows Azure Mobile Services (John Garland) & Real World Azure (Bob Goodearl).

First, Bob Goodearl ( will give a behind-the-scenes look at how Windows Azure was used for the web site for Boston Code Camp #18 ( This is a great opportunity to see how some of the Windows Azure features - like Windows Azure Web Sites, Windows Azure Cloud Services, Access Control Service, SQL Azure, Blob Storage, and Windows Azure Diagnostics - were used to realize a real web application.

Next, John Garland ( (senior consultant at Wintellect and mobile nerd) will introduce Windows Azure Mobile Services (WAMS). WAMS is amazing in its simplicity for building a back-end to your mobile applications - whether Windows Phone, iOS, and (soon) Android. The programming model is unique, and it has an extra coolness factor by being implemented using Node.js (so you get to write server-side code in javascript).

We also may have another cool surprise.
