Welcome to Global Windows Azure Bootcamp! It’s a wrap: on April 27th, 2013, we held Windows Azure bootcamps on more than 90 locations around the globe!
This one day deep dive class helped thousands of people get up to speed on developing for Windows Azure. The class included a trainer with deep real world experience with Windows Azure, as well as a series of labs so you can practice what you just learned.
Thank you organizers, sponsors and attendees!
We are still working on the “aftermath”: gathering statistics, feedback and working on a post-event white paper. In the meanwhile, here are some resources to get you started with Windows Azure in a bootcamp-ish fashion:
- The Windows Azure Training Kit – http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/net/other-resources/training-kit/. This is what the majority of the locations will be covering. There are presentations (some with speaker notes), plus hands on labs that will lead you step by step on a great deal of the Azure features.
- Keep an eye on the Microsoft run events called DevCamps: http://www.devcamps.ms/windowsazure.
- Keep an eye on the more traditional Windows Azure Boot Camps: http://www.devcamps.ms/windowsazure.
- The BUILD and other recordings on Channel 9 are a great source of materials: http://channel9.msdn.com/tags/Azure/.
