"There is no cloud, it's just someone else's computer…" That is true. But when this someone else is Microsoft, and takes care of all the maintenance of these huge server farms, you can redirect these resources used to take care of your own infrastructure to other important tasks, such as adding features for your users. However at first sight, Microsoft Azure and its huge offering can seem daunting for a new user. In this presentation, Laurent Bugnion, who until recently didn't know much about the cloud, will show you how he got started and how you too can take advantage of the services that the Microsoft Cloud has to offer. Together we will discover the Azure Portal as well as quite a few tools that make your life as a cloud developer easier.
You will learn:
- Take a guided tour in the features and tools of Azure
- How Azure can immediately be helpful to you as a developer
- Understand the basics of pricing and make sure that you don't waste money
