Earlier this year I became the chapter leader for the PASS SQL Azure Virtual Chapter and decided to reboot it. While in the reboot phase, an announcement was made stating that SQL Azure would now be known as SQL Database. This situation made the committee members consider not only renaming the group but also changing the focus of the group. The end result is the creation of the PASS Azure Virtual Chapter with a mission to enable Azure knowledge sharing and create a network of Azure and Cloud Computing professionals.
Does this mean that we would not have any SQL Database (SQL Azure) sessions? SQL Database is part of Windows Azure so we will have sessions on the topic but not all the sessions would be focused on it.
Join us for our first session: Getting Started with Windows Azure
Date: Monday 24th September 11 AM Eastern Time (8 AM Pacific) - Add the event to your calendar
Speaker: Brian Prince, Principal Cloud Evangelist Microsoft
Windows Azure is Microsoft's cloud platform for quickly building and running scalable applications. We will cover just what the cloud is, as an industry, and what Microsoft is offering. We will see into the datacenters, how they work, and a high level view of all of the components of the platform.
