GeekLunch 2014.1 - Walk-through ASP.NET CMS Products and Azure

Part I: Walk-through Windows Azure

Lately Microsoft has been adding a new set of features to Windows Azure nearly every month, giving developers more tools to use in the cloud. At the same time, they continue to enhance the existing features that have been available since the beginning. This adds a new complexity to the development process as the tools are changing and it is not based on installing a new version of the .NET framework or Visual Studio. AJi Software will present an up-to-date session covering what is available in Windows Azure and how you can use it to make better cloud applications.
