Cloudy with a chance of Awesomeness!

The cloud is everywhere and here at Microsoft, we’re flying high with our cloud computing release, Windows Azure. As most of you saw at the Professional Developers Conference, the reaction to Windows Azure has been nothing short of “wow” – and based on your feedback, we’ve organized this Windows Azure Firestarter event to help you take full advantage of the cloud.

This daylong event will focus on helping developers get ‘cloud ready.’ We’ll start by revealing Microsoft’s strategic vision for the cloud, and then offer an end-to-end view of the Windows Azure platform from a developer’s perspective. We’ll also talk about migrating your data and existing applications (regardless of platform) onto the cloud. We’ll finish up with an open panel and lots of time to ask questions.
