A recently released IDC study talks about how the Cloud will deliver more than 70,000 jobs in Canada by 2015. Similarly, the D³: LIVE & INTERACTiVE special entitled Current IT Market Conditions and Hiring Trends in 2012 discussed the increasing need for developers to have Cloud Computing knowledge and skills here in Canada.
The Cloud is where our industry is heading and with so much opportunity on the horizon‚ now is the time to get your team onboard‚ stay ahead of the curve and invest in their training. Whether you have developers that are new development or are seasoned developers, register them (or have them register themselves) to attend a Windows Azure Developer Workshop. The workshop is a full day hands-on-training workshop that will cover everything from basic Cloud Computing concepts to designing‚ developing‚ and deploying applications using Windows Azure. Your developers and/or architects will learn from experts in an interactive way and get hands-on time to apply what they’ve learned.
By the way, if you’re not currently using or don’t have plans to use Windows Azure in the near future, that’s just fine. The workshop is about developing new skills to support future development efforts. Encourage your developers and architects in their career development.
Registration is free. Seating is limited.
