Why should you care?
You’ll learn how to develop applications for Windows Azure and you could go home with an XBOX 360+Kinect Bundle!
What are the details?
We will be hosting three sessions in the 30 days. As you learn, develop a new application prototype and a 2 minute presentation about your app, describing the architecture and why Azure works well for your application. At the last session, pitch your app to the class and the best pitch (audience judged) gets an XBOX 360+Kinect 250GB Bundle!
