“Learn Windows Azure” Event Dec 13th, 2011 With Scott Guthrie, Dave Campbell, & Mark Russinovich

top_imageThis just in…

“The Gu” (a.k.a. Scott Guthrie) just announced on his blog that next Tuesday, December 13th, 2011, that there will be a live “Learn Windows Azure” event for developers.  The day long event promises to be a great way to learn about Windows Azure and what it provides.

Guthrie will be kicking off the event on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Wa with a 90 minute keynote.  Not only will “The Gu” be kicking things off, but he’ll be joined by Microsoft technical leaders, Dave Campbell and Mark Russinovich for this day long event. The three of these folks have been key engineers on Windows Azure.

Microsoft Channel 9 Logo (Small Icon)You can register watch it in person if you live in the Seattle metropolitan area.  Don’t live in Seattle?  No problem!  You can watch it live on the world wide web anywhere in the world thanks to the folks at Channel 9.  (I plan to be tuned in from near Exit 117 in Jersey!)

Why the short notice for this event? Who knows?  It’s not often that “the Gu” schedules an event like this, so I’m guessing it will be sure to have some very interesting information for developers interested in the cloud.  Don’t miss it!
