2014-03-29 - Global Windows Azure Bootcamp in Belgium

In April of 2013 we held the first Global Windows Azure Bootcamp at more than 90 locations around the globe! This year we want to again offer up a one day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands on labs will feature pooling a huge global compute farm to perform diabetes research!

Belgium will be hosting two locations this year, one in Genk and one in Kortrijk.


Each location will feature two parallel tracks: developing and regular sessions:

  • If you need a place to work on the research lab or your own Windows Azure project, there will be Windows Azure experts available for answering tough questions or to give you deep dive explanations on certain technologies (on demand).
  • Ongoing presentations throughout the day
Feel free to join any (or both) of these tracks!
