Speaking for HUNTUG on Feb 10th

9. February 2009 12:47

On Tuesday, February 10th at 6PM, I’ll be presenting at the Huntsville New Technology User Group.  The presentation will be an introduction to the Windows Azure platform.

Here is the abstract:

So, you have heard a lot of buzz about cloud computing and this new thing that is coming called “Windows Azure”, but you aren’t sure why it is a big deal or what it is all about.  Well, this session may be just what you were looking for.  Windows Azure is the new cloud operating system for Microsoft’s cloud computing initiative.  It is all about making it easier to build reliable and scalable services by alleviating a lot of the common headaches that service developers currently face today.  In this introductory overview, I will focus on the big picture of Windows Azure to help you establish an understanding of the essential concepts, particularly from the perspective of the service developer.  The goal is to try and provide you with a general understanding of the purpose of the platform and some of the ways it can be leveraged.

I hope to see you at the meeting.
