Windows Azure Camp
Saturday, March 3, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Windows Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any language, tool or framework. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment.
We will start by introducing you to what Azure is through presentations and then we’ll leverage the knowledge that we just learned to build, test, and deploy an application to Windows Azure.
Learn, then Drink to Celebrate!
By the end of the Camp, you will have completed the lab required for the Windows Azure Camp Challenge. Reward yourself participating and simply learning something new!
- Bring your notebook computers! You’ll need them to do the hands-on activities.
- Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
- SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2 Express Edition
- IIS 7 (with ASP.NET, WCF HTTP Activation)
- Download and install the Windows Azure SDK for .NET from here. You’ll need Visual Studio 2010 Express, Professional, or Ultimate; Windows Azure Tools for Visual Studio 2010 1.5 (or higher); Windows Azure SDK 1.5 (or higher); SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio Express (or full) with SP1. If you’re installing using the link above, the installer will install everything that you need. You don’t have to download and install each of the above manually.
- You have a Windows Azure account or you’ve created a Windows Azure account by signing up for the 90 Day FREE trial or activating your MSDN Windows Azure benefits.
Getting Started with Windows Azure
Windows Azure provides a comprehensive platform for building, deploying, and running applications in the cloud. By the end of this session, you will be able to quickly answer the question “What is Windows Azure?”. You will see how to get started with the Windows Azure SDK and tools to build your first application.
Understanding SQL Azure
What if you could have rich SQL database functionality as a continuously available service without having to worry about purchasing, installing and maintaining database server hardware and software? Well you can, it’s called SQL Azure Database. In this session, you’ll get an overview of SQL Azure and you’ll discover that if you know how to develop SQL Server database applications, you already have everything you need to get started with SQL Azure. You’ll walk away knowing how SQL Azure differs from on-premise SQL Server and the tips and tricks needed to get started developing new database applications or migrating existing SQL Server databases to the cloud.
