For our Nov. meeting, it’s “To the Cloud!”. That’s right, Microsoft’s huge move to the cloud continues to evolve, as evidenced by all the announcements at Build last week. To help us stay up on it, Clint Edmonson will join us to explain all the latest in Windows Azure.
Topic: What’s New in Windows Azure
Abstract: Windows Azure enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. With this past summer’s new feature release, you can build applications using any operating system, language or tooling. In this session, we’ll bring you up to speed on all the amazing services available to developers in Windows Azure including web sites, cloud services, and virtual machines.
Speaker: Clint Edmonson is a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft focused on Windows Azure. His home base is St. Louis, Missouri but on any given day you can find him touring the US Central Region talking about cloud computing and cloudy architectures. Although educated as a Mechanical Engineer, he’s spent his entire 20 year career building software. His development experiences span a variety of industries including electric utilities, education, calls centers, construction, and beer brewing. He loves seeing technology applied to solve real world problems.
