I have not seen a lot of press around this event so I thought I would share with the partner community know.
FROM THE AZURE CONF website….
WHEN :October 21, 2014 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM PST
WHERE: Live Streaming from Channel 9
WHAT: A free event for the Azure community. This event will feature a keynote presentation by Scott Guthrie, along with numerous sessions executed by Azure community members. Streamed live for an online audience on Channel 9, the event will allow you to see how developers just like you are using Azure to develop robust, scalable applications on Azure. Community members from all over the world will join known speakers such as Michael Collier, Mike Martin, Rick Garibay, and Chris Auld in the Channel 9 studios to present their own inventions and experiences. Whether you’re just learning Microsoft Azure or you've already achieved success on the platform, you won’t want to miss this special event.
If you missed the WPC keynote by Scott Guthrie I would encourage you to attend Scott’s keynote on Azure Conf if nothing else. Although this virtual conference is tailored for the developer community, I have no doubt Scott will impress us all with updates on the massive scale and new compelling features coming to market with Microsoft Azure!
If you have a development acumen in house I would recommend encouraging a few of your dev team to attend. Feedback from last year was quite good! The TS2 team tends to focus more on the IaaS offerings that part of the Microsoft Azure platform due to the fact most of the resellers we support are more interested in that space, but it goes without saying that Azure was a ISV/ PaaS play first. Why not find out what is new and exciting with the best box of Legos in the cloud!
Hope to see you there.
