Well, you’ve been asking and the time has finally come. We’ve got more TechNet Events coming up for your viewing pleasure. So, sign up now by clicking on the your Midwest city from the list below and we’ll see you at the next free event! This round of events will be a slightly different format, so make sure you sign up for both TechNet and MSDN events (there are two lists below) to get the biggest bang for your back. We’ve also merged ArcReady events into the MSDN/TechNet roadshow, so there is no separate sign up for those events anymore. Thanks and we’ll see you there!
 
Announcing Real World Azure with Microsoft IT

Our first event under the new format will be on cloud computing and specifically the Windows Azure Platform.  Cloud computing is a big topic in the industry these days, Microsoft is not the only player in the space, but we are pretty proud of our Windows Azure Platform.  This topic will talk about the nuts and bolts of the platform, but will also showcase an application built on the platform, “Project Austin”.  Here is information on the TechNet Events and MSDN Events.
