Last two days I am here in Tech Ed 2010 in Sri Lanka. I enjoy coming to Sri Lanka for two reasons. One, compared to India developer population here is small but they are very eager to learn new technologies. Second, the local Microsoft DPE team is very innovative in their programs and their hospitality is awesome & very Sri Lankan. The last time I made a talk in the country was for DevDay 2007.
My first talk on Day 2 was titled “Lap Around the Windows Azure Platform” where I covered on the Introduction to Windows Azure, Need for a cloud computing platform, case study video, a lap around the platform and a live demo. I am happy to share few of the comments I received from the audience for this session:
– Great introduction to Windows Azure
– Communication skills are good & examples given on practical environment
My second talk on Day 3 was titled “Introduction to Building Applications with Windows Azure” where I covered about building an application with Windows Azure end to end, Roles, Storages in Azure (Blob, Tables, Queues), SQL Azure and a guestbook demo application. I am happy to share few of the comments I received from the audience for this session:
– Good Detailed one
