Get in the cloud for free!

Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform, and a lot of developers are excited to try it out. To help you try it out, we have started a program called “Windows Azure Pass.” You can register a Live ID for a Pass and receive 30 days of free cloud computing. Just enough time to dip your toes in the cloud and see how easy it really is. NO credit card required. Do this before your boss comes over and expects you to have answers about ‘this cloud thing.’

Windows AzureJust go to, and enter the promo code CRANGELAD. Your Pass will be activated within a few days, and you can start deploying code all day long.

Once you get a pass you can attend a two day boot camp to learn more about Windows Azure, try some hands on labs on your own time, or join us online during office hours to get all of your questions answered.
