About this Event

Are you a key business decision maker, Developer, or IT Ops professional and don't have time to understand Microsoft Azure?  Well, can you spare just one day to learn from the top Microsoft Azure experts?

Attend the no-cost one-day Charlotte Azure Boot Camp (Saturday, September 6 at the Microsoft Campus in Charlotte / #cltazurebootcamp). Quickly learn how Microsoft Azure can help you minimize cost, reduce time to delivery, provide simple global deployment, and support your applications and servers with leading edge technology. Learn the business benefits and gain deep technical direction and tips as you listen to  a star-studded lineup of speakers - actual Microsoft Azure Program Managers, Microsoft Azure technical experts, and Azure MVPs share their real-world experiences and technical expertise. Talk 1:1 with Microsoft, RDA, and Aditi Cloud experts about your questions and needs around Microsoft Azure. Network with other Cloud professionals and companies in the Southeast that can help meet your Cloud staffing and project requirements. 

Take a look at the big names and exciting topics we have planned:

A special speaker all-hands Q&A session is a featured event in the conference where any and all questions you have about Azure will be answered by the Microsoft/Aditi/RDA expert speaker panel.  There will also be a table manned by Microsoft Azure Support Engineers where you can bring your questions/app and have them help you with it live and at no cost!  So if you ever considered Microsoft Azure before this is your chance to jump start your knowledge and transform those thought into actions! 

Giveways too! In addition to  making great Azure contacts and gathering useful information an X-Box 360 system, XBOX 360 games, various PC peripheral devices, and with TWO New Egg Gift Certificates valued at $250 a piece (total $500), and licensed software, will be given away to lucky attendees!

The Charlotte Azure Boot Camp will include three exciting and very informative learning tracks with something for everyone.

Understanding Azure – For Business Decision Makers and Architects.  Learn just how secure is the Azure Cloud, how to evaluate it the Cloud could benefit your business, how to build a Cloud roadmap, and Cloud architectural concepts and patterns.

Developing Azure – For Developers (PaaS).  Learn how to build scalable Azure applications, how to use Azure Cache to make highly responsive Azure applications, and how Azure Mobile and Media Services expand your services and customer base.

Administering Azure – For IT Operations and Administrators (IaaS). Learn how to avoid the common IaaS mistakes, how to optimize and secure virtual networks, automate the lifetime of your Cloud resources, optimize Azure storage, and how the Azure Resource Manager makes management of your resources simpler.

A light breakfast and lunch will be provided, as well as sponsor giveaways and raffles for very nice prizes. There is no cost to attend!  At first we chose to limit it to the first 100  IT Professionals.  But due to incredible response  well before the event, we have now added 50 additional tickets (we cannot add any more due to room sizes after this). All we ask is that you register on the event site (one ticket per person) and follow through and commit to coming so we can plan for proper food headcount.  Thank you.
