Want to learn about Windows Azure + Node.js this week? Join Me @ Iselin, NJ 6/6 or Stamford, CT 6/7!

CloudyInNJIt’s cloudy in Jersey this week.  That can mean only one thing:  There are THREE great opportunities to learn about Windows Azure this week!  Two with me locally in NJ and CT.  And one online from San Francisco from Scott “The Gu” Guthrie himself!

What’s all this buzz about Node.js?  What about using Node.js with Windows Azure?  Want to find out?  I’ll be speaking about Azure & Node twice this week at local area user groups.  Join me Wednesday June 6, 2012 at the NJ Windows Azure User Group in Iselin, NJ, or catch me up at the Fairfield/Westchester .NET user group in Stamford, CT on Thursday June 7, 2012.  If you can’t join me, catch the “Meet Windows Azure” event live online Thursday afternoon at 4pm EDT!


Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud service, providing compute, storage, and other services to enable you to scale apps on demand. Azure is not just a .NET solution. It’s a Windows solution, supporting other languages, including Java, PHP, and most recently Node.js. Node.js?! What’s that? Why should I care? Join Peter for an overview of both Node.js and Windows Azure, as well as how you can run Node.js apps in Azure. We’ll look at the tools and deployment process and cover some of the details of how Node runs on Windows in general.
