Catapult Systems, my employer, is hosting several of the upcoming Windows Azure Dev Camps. I’ll be helping out with two in Denver (April 25) and Houston (April 29). The Dev Camps will provide you with an overview of Windows Azure and an opportunity to complete several Hands-on Labs, including topics such as IaaS and Azure Mobile Services.
If you plan to attend one of these events, or if you are just curious to see what Azure can offer, sign up for a free 90-day Azure trial. If you are a student, you should also sign up for Dreamspark, which includes a free Windows Store developer license. (You need the Windows Store developer license to send push notifications to a Windows 8 client.)
Pluralsight was kind enough to provide an Annual subscription to their online developer training library of over 450 video courses, a $299 value, as a raffle prize.
Please note that you must be present to receive one of the above prizes during the raffle at the end of the camp.
