Build a business case: developing custom apps

On 10 October at 11am BST, The Register is broadcasting a live, hands-on training session on Windows Azure that you can enjoy for free from the comfort of your own chair.

The session will introduce and demonstrate how to get started with Windows Azure, giving an overview of its key features – particularly its recently released Infrastructure-as-a-Service capabilities – and a deep dive into some specifics.

This will include demonstrating how to use the Windows Azure web portal to create virtual machines running both Linux and Windows, and showing you how to get both Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications and servers running in the Windows Azure cloud. As part of this we’ll be looking at how to SSH in and install Apache on a Linux server.

We'll also demonstrate how to configure a virtual network in the cloud and connect it via VPN to your own on-premise network, and how to begin scripting the creation of your cloud computing infrastructure using PowerShell.

The show is hosted by our very own Tim Phillips and he will be joined by Matt Bishop from training experts QA Training, who’ll be doing the "hands-on" part of this session. If you need or want to know how to get stuck into Windows Azure, this could be just the fillip you need.

You can register for it here or just add it to your calendar here (iCal).

To ensure you get the maximum benefit out of this, make sure you come along with any relevant questions you might have. Matt and Tim are fully primed to help. We hope to see you there. ®
