Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Promo I’ve been working in IT for years now and there’s always a list of stuff to get up-to-date with. Cloud computing is the latest one but I’m so busy I just want somebody to spoon-feed it to me so I can decide whether I need to plan for it.

I think that’s why I’m interested in an online session that repeats every day for a week in May.

It’s going to take an hour out of my day but I get to choose which day that is. Microsoft are going to explain their public cloud platform (Azure) to me. Apparently there’s a way to get £130 deposited into a subscription to spend on any of their cloud facilities and they’re going to show how to get hold of it.

I don’t know what I’ll be most interested in at this stage but they’re going to do demos on how to create websites; how to create servers that live in the cloud (sounds like something for me); how to create mobile services; and how to create cloud services. Oh and there’ll also be a chance to ask questions.

The session takes place every day from 12 - 16 May, 12:30 – 13:30 (BST). You can register here.
