Don't forget: we have tools for IT Pros to manage both Private and Public CloudsAre you interested in learning the ins-and-outs of working with Windows Azure?  Wondering how to get started cheaply - as in “for FREE”?  We’re giving you a chance to spend a day with some of the nation’s leading cloud experts and for you to learn how to build a web application that runs in Windows Azure.  You will learn how to sign up for free time in the cloud, and how to build a typical web application using the same ASP.NET tools and techniques.  You’ll explore web roles, cloud storage, SQL Azure, and common scenarios. Get your questions answered via open Q&A, and learn what workloads should not be moved to cloud. 

This will be a hands-on learning experience.  The invite links below have the details needed for setup your machine.  Of course we’ll have help onsite to get the right software installed as well.  Lunch will be provided, and prizes awarded.  You can use the registration links below to get registered.
