The local Microsoft Developer & Platform Group are offering ‘Jumpstart’ workshops on the Windows Azure Platform, to help developers ‘jumpstart’ their cloud application development. Delivered through workshop style presentations and interactive tuition, the workshop will focus on helping attendees in building scalable applications on the Azure platform.
We now have workshops lined up for January in Cork, Limerick, Galway, Derry and Dublin - developers can learn more and register now @ http://www.microsoft.com/ireland/azure/.
We are also running an Azure 'Acceleration Labs' for developers with greater Azure development experience and knowledge - who are on the brink of deploying an Azure application. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on these labs.
The Windows Azure platform has been built from the ground up with interoperability in mind. As an open platform, Windows Azure offers choices to developers. Developers can code with .NET, PHP, Ruby, Python or Java and use Visual Studio or Eclipse. Try Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform for free. www.microsoft.ie/windowsazure.
