Folks we’re finally here! The stage is set and light the lights as it’s all ready to go oooorrrrffff on March 29th 2014!

What is it – it’s back!!!!

 Global Windows Azure Bootcamp

The Global Windows Azure Bootcamp – over 134 locations will be delivering this world wide event at the same time (same relative time).

In April of 2013 we held the first Global Windows Azure Bootcamp at more than 90 locations around the globe! This year we want to again offer up a one day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands on labs will feature pooling a huge global compute farm to perform diabetes research!

Where is it?

It’s back at Saxons in the city – 10 Barrack Street, NSW 2000 (see the rego page for all the details)

Why you?

It’s a free day of Azure training delivered by several MVPs and other community prominent experts.

Agenda for the day

We will be doing a combination of presentations and hands-on-labs around Azure and all the new features it has to offer.

The final agenda is yet to be determined but it’s something like:

*** What’s required from you on the day ***

BYOD – bring your own machine and internet access will be provided on the day.

Make sure you have a ‘Microsoft Account’ (aka live account) and have signed up for a free trial to Azure Services (I may have some codes for you, but dont count on it)

For the HOL material, we’ll take it from the Windows Azure Training Kit as a basis.

 

Get your skates on and get on over to a great day!
