If you're going to be in San Diego tomorrow evening, you may want to check out the San Diego .NET User Group Connected Systems SIG meeting. See you there!


Microsoft Azure Services Platform

Cloud computing represents the new wave of innovation that will significantly transform many aspects of computing as we know today. During this session, we will discuss Microsoft's outlook and strategy in moving towards cloud computing, providing the next-generation cloud-based platform for building services in the cloud. We will also discuss what cloud-based applications may look like, and how they need to be architected differently from today's on-premise enterprise applications in various scenarios. We will then discuss the enterprise-class components of the Microsoft Azure Services platform, with an overview of .NET Services, SQL Services, and Windows Azure.
