Do you need support to help you move to the cloud? Are you considering building an application on the Windows Azure Platform? If so, I would like to invite you to participate in Six Weeks of Windows Azure. http://www.sixweeksofazure.co.uk/

Starting 23rd January 2012 we will be offering six weeks of FREE assistance to companies who want to build or extend applications with the Windows Azure Platform. During the six weeks we will be delivering a series of webinars, surgeries and online support which will cover both the commercial and technical aspects of adopting the Windows Azure Platform.

By signing up you will benefit from:

  • Understanding why cloud may be relevant to your applications and options you have to adopt it
  • Advice on how to start and how to be successful – both in terms of business transformation and technology choices
  • Free online help to actually get the application designed, built, tested and deployed
  • Plus advice on marketing and selling your application

And the best bit is … you won’t need to leave your office to take part as we will be delivering the above through interactive webinars with a smidgen of really impactful sessions which will take place at our offices in Reading…. All provided by subject matter experts from Microsoft and our partners.

Examples of what will be on offer include

Weekly checkpoints every Monday

There are weekly checkpoints which take place each Monday in the form of an online meeting. At these checkpoints we will share learning’s from the previous week and highlight the opportunities for the current week such as webinars, surgeries and on-demand resources

Webinars

Weekly on-line briefings covering business and technical areas with plenty of opportunity to ask questions

Surgeries

A great opportunity to go on-line and pose the trickiest of questions and unblock stalled developments and get a sanity check on your thinking

Drop in Labs

Whilst there is no need to leave the comfort of your own office, we will be running a number of activities out of our technology centre at our offices in Reading. They will quite simply be awesome!
