Registration is now open for the November edition of the Windows Azure BootCamp (powered by Tech.Days UK).
The Windows Azure Camps are events which will show you how to take advantage of cloud computing. This is a free full day training to get you up-to-speed with Microsoft’s Windows Azure. We’ll take you on a journey from learning about the cloud, writing some code, deploying to the cloud and making a simple application available on the internet.
There will be experienced people available to guide you through each exercise. Once you have the basics in place, you’ll be up and running. To get your applications running, you’ll need an Azure subscription, so we can provide you with a special free pass that will entitle you to four compute instances, 3 GB of storage, Two* 1GB Web Edition databases. You can carry on using this subscription until it expires, after you’ve left the training course. You do not need a credit card to activate this free pass.
When you walk away from this bootcamp, you can either de-activate the Azure application before you leave, or leave it running so that when you get home you can continue with your Windows Azure coding adventures. In any case you will
walk away with the code you’ve written on your laptop and an ability to modify it, test it locally on your laptop and deploy it to your free Windows Azure subscription any time you choose!
- A laptop with either Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2010 installed along with the Windows Azure SDK and Tools version 1.5. Bring the power supply, you will be using the laptop all day.
- A basic knowledge of programming concepts and familiarity with Visual Studio
- A basic knowledge of web-programming and how Internet applications work
- An understanding of the Microsoft web-stack (Windows Server, IIS, basic security etc.)
- Request for an Windows Azure Pass (which will take up to 5 days to process – so please allow time for this)
