Azure in Australia


Microsoft Azure - launching downunder

I’m looking forward to the upcoming Azure launch in Australia, if for no other reason than finally learning what the proper pronunciation is :-) Is it a-zue-er or is it azsh-or ?

Tuesday Feb 23 in Sydney is the official launch. Mark your calendars!

But for added goodness, get along to a user group and hear David Lemphers talk about it non-stop (that’s right he scales!). Andrew Coates has all the Azure User Group details. He’ll be in Sydney on Thursday Feb 25 for a night meeting. Mark that one too.

I’m pretty impressed with the Azure stuff (as you might have guessed from previous ramblings), not only because of the technology, but also the strategic direction it demonstrates Microsoft is pursuing. PHP, Java, MySQL – all welcome here.
