Windows Azure Bootcamp at DevLink 2012!

To the Cloud!

Spend a day with your head in the cloud as you learn how to build web applications that run in Windows Azure. We will show you how to sign up for FREE time in the cloud, and how to build a typical web application using the same ASP.NET tools and techniques you already use today. We will explore web roles, cloud storage, SQL Azure, and common scenarios. We will save time for open Q&A and some hands-on activities.

Since this  will be a hands-on event you will need to bring with you a laptop pre-configured with the required tools and SDKs. We will have help onsite to get the right bits installed as well if you run into trouble. Lunch and prizes will also be provided.

Session Requirements

  • A computer or laptop running at least Windows Vista SP2 or later (XP is NOT supported, Windows 7 or Windows 8 RP is recommended)
  • Sign up for a FREE Windows Azure Trial Account at http://aka.ms/ckazuretrial
  • One click install of Windows Azure SDK and required software using Web Platform Installer via http://aka.ms/ckazurenet
  • The sample code and lab manuals can be found at http://github.com/WindowsAzure-TrainingKit. To reduce paper consumption and save a few trees, no printed versions will be made available at the event.

Consider bringing your own power strip too, just in case 🙂

Check-in begins at 8:00, the event starts promptly at 9:00.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Chris Koenig (chris.koenig@microsoft.com) as he is hosting the event and will be able to answer your question promptly.
