What we're about

The Azure Sydney User Group is here to help Sydney developers, engineers, architects and everyone in between better understand and benefit from the Microsoft Azure public cloud.  We encourage all our members to present and aim to spread our sessions across the breadth of Azure, talking on both Developer and IT Pro topics.
