I Last month, I posted here about the upcoming Windows Azure Dev Camps I will be hosting with my teammates Brian Hitney and Jim O’Neil. Just a reminder that we’re kicking our 5 city tour off on Monday down in Raleigh, NC at North Carolina State University!
If you’ve been wanting to learn about cloud computing and the Windows Azure platform, these events will be a great opportunity to do so! I’ve posted the full agenda below. All of the events, except New York City, will be from 2pm – 9pm. (Due to facility availability, NYC is from 9am – 4pm.)
For the first half of the event, we’ll be covering the who/what/where/why/and when of the Windows Azure platform. For the second half, you will be “in the code”, competing in the Rock Paper Azure Challenge!
You’ll get to code a C# or Visual Basic “bot” that plays the game of Rock Paper Scissors against other Dev Camps attendees. As part of the RPA Challenge, you’ll walk through the process of creating an Azure account, deploying a basic compute hosted service, and exploring the Windows Azure Management Portal.
Before Thanksgiving, I posted that the Rock Paper Azure Challenge is back online with a chance to win a trip to Cancun, Mexico. That contest is ongoing online through 12/16/2011. At the Azure Dev Camp events, you will be participating in a “private” version of the RPA Challenge against the other attendees that day. We’ll have some cool prizes on hand for the winners at each event. However, once you’ve participated in the RPA Challenge at one of our Azure Dev Camps, you can easily enter the online challenge and have a chance at the trip to Cancun!
