   Hardware & Software
 Course Objective
The Windows Azure Platform is the Microsoft solution for cloud computing. The Azure Platform provides operating system,
database and application services that simplify administration, streamline maintenance and reduce costs. This course provides
the knowledge to build and deploy applications that utilize the Windows Azure Platform using Visual Studio and .NET.

What will you learn?

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

               Understand what is Windows Azure
               Get a good idea of how to design, develop, debug and deploy an application for the Cloud
               Build scalable, fault-tolerant and secure cloud-based applications using the Windows Azure Platform
               Leverage existing knowledge of Visual Studio and .NET to develop applications for the cloud
               Create, deploy, configure and monitor ASP.NET applications that run in the Azure cloud
               Host Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services using Azure
               Employ worker roles and queues for asynchronous processing
               Create and access SQL Azure databases for cloud-based storage

Who should attend?

Programmers, architects and application designers who would like to take advantage of Microsoft Azure services to create
scalable, secure and affordable cloud-based applications.
