Since global availability of SharePoint 2013, Windows Azure is getting more and more important for SharePoint and SharePoint Online. As a developer you can create Apps for SharePoint using Windows Azure as platform for your custom website, which will interact with your SharePoint instance.
Therefor almost every SharePoint dev should be familiar with Windows Azure and it’s services. Windows Azure MVPs and the Windows Azure community are organising a global BootCamp for Windows Azure on 27th of April 2013.
Worldwide there are almost 100 locations where you can join the BootCamp for free! This is a great chance for the SharePoint folks to dig into Microsoft’s Cloud Services and learn how to build scalable Apps for SharePoint.
Visit the Global Windows Azure BootCamp Website in order to register for the event. (http://globalwindowsazure.azurewebsites.net/)
