I will be presenting the Azure Weekly :- Getting Started with Azure webinar on the 19th August 2014 on behalf of Steve Plank and I would encourage you to come and take part in the session, or on any of the other days that this runs on over the course of the next year. You can register for any of the other days by visiting my colleagues article and selecting your preferred date here:
If you are an IT Pro, Developer or Architect and haven't yet got started with Azure, this is a practical introduction to the core compute services of Web Sites, Virtual Machines, Mobile Services and Cloud Services. It will get you over the hump of the initial learning you'll need to do. There are 5 quickfire demos of the technology which you'll be able to do yourself once you've finished and signed up for a free trial subscription.
The Azure Weekly runs every Tuesday from 12:30 – 13:30 (UK timezone) and is aimed at the techie who has not yet had any/much exposure to Azure but who just wants a leg-up to get started. This is a more practically focused session than a theoretical/architectural session and is mostly based around the following demos:
- How to sign up for a free Microsoft Azure Trial subscription
- Creating a Microsoft Azure WordPress website
- Creating a Microsoft Azure ASP.Net website
- Creating a Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine
- Creating a Microsoft Azure Mobile Services (with Android client)
- Creating a Microsoft Azure Cloud Service
You can register for this particular session which will be on Tuesday 19th August 2014 via this URL:
NOTE: If you wish to register for another date, please refer to the main article mentioned above on my colleagues blog article.
Essentially the same session will run every week but of course as features are updated, there will be small changes from time-to-time. For example there is a new management portal in special preview at the moment. When this is formally released, Azure Weekly will be updated to incorporate the new portal. But you can probably see there aren’t going to be any major changes.
You can ask questions throughout and there will be a short slow at the end for Q&A as well.
Later the same day, any relevant questions that were asked, plus the answers, will be sent out by email and for those that can’t wait that long – they will also be tweeted.
I look forward to seeing you then, if you have any questions please be sure to reach out to me.
