Windows Azure Open Platform Services (OSS) Summit - Paris, France - Dec 4, 2012


Learn more about how Windows Azure has helped companies realize the true value of the cloud.  Windows Azure supports multiple development platforms, languages, and tools providing first-class choice beyond .NET for developers and enterprises. Register for our Open Services Summit to learn how you can take advantage of an open, flexible, rock solid platform.

Windows Azure Open Platform Summit Goals

Delivered by Windows Azure experts, this special one day technical event will focus on the compelling story of OSS and the Windows Azure platform, and will cover key topics such as:

  • Why Azure is a great platform to create open, scalable, robust and resilient solutions across a wide range of technology stacks and programming tools and languages
  • How Windows Azure’s “Infrastructure-as-a-Service” makes it easy to create and manage virtual machines and networks for both Linux- and Windows-based applications
  • Experience the great developer story with Eclipse and a wide host of SDKs covering Node.JS, Python, PHP, and Java
  • Explore the range of data stores available on Windows Azure for both SQL and NoSQL, including databases such as MongoDB



Windows Azure Overview and Roadmap

In this session, we will present the Windows Azure platform overview and  end-to-end Windows Azure story as it relates to OSS. We will also highlight OSS & Windows Azure success stories.

The Developer Story – Languages, Tooling, SDKs

We will show how to develop applications using programming languages such as Java, PHP, Python and Node.js. Also, we will dive into language specific SDKs and the developer experience using popular IDEs and tools, including Eclipse and Github.

IaaS – Linux, Virtual Machines, Networking

The Infrastructure-as-a-Service session will cover Virtual Machines, Virtual Networks, and hybrid solutions using multiple operating systems including Linux and Windows Server.

The Data Story – SQL, NoSQL

We will cover both SQL and NoSQL.  We will cover relational databases like Windows Azure SQL DB and MySQL and on NoSQL side we will cover Windows Azure Table Storage and MongoDB.  We will dive into hosting MongoDB in your own virtual machine and MongoDB-as-a-service.


Many apps are being built with Node.js today. We’ll show how a node.js app works in Windows Azure, as well as its applicability to Windows Azure Web Sites and NoSQL databases such as MongoDB.
