As I write I’m on my way home from the inaugural meeting of the UK Azure Net user group at Microsoft’s London offices. Speaker for the evening was Senior Director of Evangelism (or some similar poncy title) for Azure, James Conard, who did a good demo-heavy Azure Services Platform 101 for what was a very healthy 100+ turnout for an inaugural meeting.
I’m delighted to see that there’s already a community building around this platform and these services and I’m looking forward to getting involved and applying what I’ve learnt and am planning to learn about the Azure Services Platform and, in particular, SQL Data Services and the Live Framework over the coming months. The next meeting is in mid-May so if you live anywhere near London consider going along – details are at www.ukazurenet.com.
Thanks to Microsoft for the beer and pizza by the way. Staple grub at a geekfest events like this!
