This year, we're delivering in-person IT Camp events as part of our broader Cloud OS Signature Launch Series on Windows Server 2012 and Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). In addition, we'll also be delivering a series of additional IT Camp events throughout the US Heartland ... be sure to check http://technetevents.com to register and for details on upcoming IT Camps!
What is an IT Camp?
An IT Camp is a demo-heavy technical event for IT Pros interested in learning about how to install, configure and manage the latest capabilities in Windows Server 2012, Private Cloud, and Azure IaaS Virtual Machines. During each IT Camp, you'll also have an opportunity to walk-through a set of hands-on labs to build your own virtual lab environment complete with clustered servers!
