Folks we’re finally here! The stage is set and light the lights as it’s all ready to go oooorrrrffff on March 29th 2014!

What is it – it’s back!!!!

 Global Windows Azure Bootcamp

The Global Windows Azure Bootcamp – over 134 locations will be delivering this world wide event at the same time (same relative time).

In April of 2013 we held the first Global Windows Azure Bootcamp at more than 90 locations around the globe! This year we want to again offer up a one day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands on labs will feature pooling a huge global compute farm to perform diabetes research!

Where is it?

It’s back at Saxons in the city – 10 Barrack Street, NSW 2000 (see the rego page for all the details)

Why you?

It’s a free day of Azure training delivered by several MVPs and other community prominent experts.

Agenda for the day

We will be doing a combination of presentations and hands-on-labs around Azure and all the new features it has to offer.

The final agenda is yet to be determined but it’s something like:

  What the Days Play looks like…
8:30 – 9:00am  Arrive and get comfy, make sure everything is working.
9:00 – 9:15am  Intros, Outline what will be covered for the day & take your input as to what areas to drill into.
9:15 – 9:45am  What is Azure and what has it done for me lately?
9:45 – 10:15am  HOL #1
10:15 – 10:45am  Designing Hybrid Solutions to coexist with On-premise solutions.
10:45 – 11:15am  HOL #2
11:15 – 12:15pm  Exploring Azure and some snazzy items in the toolkit.
12:15pm – 1pm   L U N C H
13:00 – 13:30 Data strategies within Azure.
13.30 – 14:00 HOL #3
14:00 – 14:30 Azure Mobile Services
14:30 – 15:00 HOL #4
15:00 – 15:30 Setting up Azure Active Directory Federation
15:30 – 16:00 HOL #5
16:00 - …. Q&A & general tyre kicking.
   

 

*** What’s required from you on the day ***

BYOD – bring your own machine and internet access will be provided on the day.

Make sure you have a ‘Microsoft Account’ (aka live account) and have signed up for a free trial to Azure Services (I may have some codes for you, but dont count on it)

For the HOL material, we’ll take it from the Windows Azure Training Kit as a basis.

 

Get your skates on and get on over to a great day!

Halloween’s just over and my place was overrun with Kids of all sizes seeking high-fructose corn syrup hits…to keep them going till the next house.

It seems Scott Gutherie has all sorts of pieces he wants to chat about on this next free conference.

The world of the Cloud moves just so quickly that these sorts of events are essential to get you up to date in your thinking.

Remember what the cloud story was 12 months ago & how many new features/capabilities have been added since.

Check out the blurb and register….

Now that the dust is settling after WPC 2012, I’m able to catch up on all the emails still coming from the event.

I had a picture taken with John (against a green screen) and is it’s amazing what they can do with modern technology now. Smile

WPC Award

From my research a couple of points:

  • Over the last 4 years, approx 200 Worldwide Partner awards have been given – 6 of them Australian Partners! We’re one of 6.
  • This is the first time EVER an Australian Partner has been an Application Integration Winner
  • This is the first time EVER an Australian Partner has been a Cloud Partner Finalist

See more here

Talk to you soon.

Mick.

I am still in shock over this award and are very humbled in receiving it – over 3500+ entries and our story won. Thank you Microsoft, thank you Breeze team and thank you to our great customers in which all of this would not have been possible without you.

So today was the day at WPC2012 to receive the award up on stage here in Toronto. Not nervous at all Winking smile seeing we had a 2hr rehearsal yesterday.

What a time has this been so far at my first WPC!!! Compared to ‘techie’ conferences the dress standard is higher, different type of events and some great tech demos that are mind blowing (there was one on the keynote today where a partner had developed software around Kinect that created a 3d model of a person by moving the Kinect camera around the person, their software stitched the images together to produce a 3d model. Then the image/model was fed to a 3D printer and presto…out came the 3D person! Very cool)

So after having a photo down under the stadium we were to come out of I was ready to go….

So all in all it’s been a great day, great time so far and well worth it. I was then fortunate enough to be invited to a Azure Round table discussion with Satya Nadella (President of Server and Tools) and what a lovely lovely lovely guy. He’s very switched on and a refreshing experience was had with myself and 6 others in the room.

He took away our Azure stories and feedback so let's wait and see what transpires – very inspirational stuff! Thank you Satya.
