A series of briefings targeted at ISVs and start-ups covering Windows Azure, .NET and Live Services and SQL Data Services.
The briefings will consist of technical discussion, demos and interactive discussion and will focus on what Azure is and how it can be used as a platform for cloud-based development. The sessions will be small, typically less than 30, to keep the flow of conversation going, and are suitable for Technical Decision Makers, Application Architects, Senior Developers and CTOs. There will be time after the event for more detailed ‘one to one’ discussions on any topics related to this session.
Briefings will be held in Reading, London, Edinburgh and Bradford. Sounds like a great opportunity, for more details see this entry on the ISV Team blog http://blogs.msdn.com/ukisvdev/archive/2009/01/14/new-dates-for-azure-technical-briefing-announced.aspx.
