Azure Weekly (getting started with Azure: weekly webinar)


The Azure Weekly runs every Tuesday from 12:30 – 14:00 (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:

* 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

* How to sign up for a free Microsoft Azure Trial subscription

The session is immediately followed by a 30 minute talk from a guest speaker about a particular aspect of Azure. This will be an experienced Azure guy who will give you the benefits of the practical experience they have gained, working with Azure. The first guest speaker slot starts on the 14th October.

You can either just stay for the first hour’s how-to session, or just log on for the guest speaker’s talk, or do what most newcomers do and stay for both talks.


If you miss it one week – just come the next week. 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. Of course, there’s a different guest speaker every week so you’ll always be getting something new and interesting, even if you’ve attended before.

You can ask questions throughout and there will be a short space at the end for Q&A as well.

    Hi Greg,

    We're trying to keep the session live, relevant and up-to-date: we don't record it – hence it runs every week. Everybody should never be more than a week away from a live session. Also you get the opportunity to ask questions, benefit from other peoples' questions and from 14th October we also have guest speakers.
