Developer Camps (DevCamps for short) are free, fun, no-fluff events for developers, by developers. You learn from experts in a low-key, interactive way and then get hands-on time to apply what you’ve learned. Where else can you get so much good stuff all in a day?

Come prepared
We want you to hit the ground running.

Please come prepared.

You don’t want to waste your time at an Azure DevCamp downloading and installing files. Setting up can take quite some time and will interfere with productivity.   I will also provide some posts for those that could not attend.
This post includes:

1. Hardware Minimum Hardware configurations.
2. Software Windows, Visual Studio
3. SDKs Azure SDK
4. Labs Labs and Powerpoint downloads
5. Video Verification The video you should watch to verify you are setup (less than 2 minutes)


  Azure DevCamp - Hardware - minimum
  The following hardware is needed to install the needed software:

CPU 1.6 GHz or faster non-Mac CPU
Memory 2+ GB RAM
Storage 20 GB Hard Disk


** Important Note **
Running Macintosh computers is not recommended. Storage and Compute emulators do not always work properly.

  Azure DevCamp - Software
  Supported Operating Systems

Don’t expect Windows XP to work. Here are the supported OS’s.

1. Windows Server 2008
2. Windows Server 2008 R2
3. Windows Vista
4. Windows 7

Visual Studio and SQL Server Express
Various versions of Visual Studio will work. Please be sure you have one of the following:

Visual Studio 2010 Professional
Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate
Visual Studio 2010 Test Professional
Visual Studio Express
SQL Server Express (this is required)

  Free Trial Account  / Azure SDK
  Free Trial         


  Labs and PowerPoints

You are about to install Windows Azure Camps Kit.

The Windows Azure Camps Training Kit includes the hands-on labs and presentations that are used for the Windows Azure Camp events.

Installer for Azure Web Camps

  Video – to prepare you are ready
  The main thing to remember is that most of the labs can be done with emulators. This means you don’t necessarily need to deploy your app to the cloud (Microsoft Data Center). You can run most of these labs all on your local computer. This is important as there is not often enough network bandwidth at large events.

Currently, there is no audio. But it should be easy to follow.

Video to verify setup

  Please verify you can run the sample demonstrated in the video above. This will give you a huge headstart once you attend the boot camp.        

People only see what they are prepared to see.
