#AzureCon is coming 30.09.2015
Join this worldwide event from your place in Aotearoa. The event is for IT Implementers and Enterprise Developers, with a choice of more than 50 short, technical sessions from level 200-400. It will be demo heavy and slide light!

Sound good? Join the event here. Stream the exclusive keynotes from Scott Guthrie, Jason Zander, Bill Staples, Scott Hanselman, Mark Russinovich and other Azure engineer gurus. Join live Q&As and interact with the architects and engineers who are building the latest features.

Get started with some quick Azure facts:

  • Hybrid: Create new applications while adding value to existing investment by extending your data center to the cloud
  • Best for business: With more Gartner MQ leadership positions than any other cloud vendor and more regions than AWS and Google combined
  • Open & Flexible: Embraces open source technologies but also creates a first class experience for all of your business applications (i.e. SAP, Oracle, Cloudera, etc.)
  • Trustworthy: Microsoft has provided detailed information showing how the Azure cloud platform addresses all of the data sovereignty, security and privacy questions set out in the 105 question due diligence framework issued by the NZ Government Chief Information Officer, who's responsible for providing guidance on how NZ government organizations should adopt cloud computing

Put it in your diary to join the Azure experts and people like you from everywhere around the world at the end of this month.
