As I write this blog post, the current set of upcoming events is focused on the features in Windows Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).  These events contain both presentation and hands-on components where attendees are encouraged to bring their own computer to participate in the hands-on exercises where we walk through setup and configuration of Windows Azure IaaS including but not limited to Windows Server 2012 Virtual Machines, Active Directory, PowerShell management of Windows Azure IaaS resources, virtual networking and much, much more.

You can sign up for the Windows Azure IaaS in person events from the links here.

These events utilize a number of resources to fully leverage your learning experience with Windows Azure including a number of setup and configuration articles, PowerShell scripts, and other resources.  The list of these resources are linked below.
