27th April 2013 was an awesome day! Why? On that day, we have events for more than 96 locations, 154 speakers, 194 sessions, and 7432 attendees. That’s what we called Global Windows Azure Bootcamp. Cool, isn’t it?
We also ran one in Singapore, participated by about 70 attendants. Although it was a rainy Saturday morning, the attendants are all very passionate. Deeply appreciate it guys!
We started the event with welcome not from me and Faizal as the founders of the Windows Azure User Group Singapore. We talked briefly about how the UG was started, some statistic on Global Windows Azure Bootcamp, Sponsors, and Agendas of the day.
Right after the welcome note, Hammad started his session of Windows Azure – State of Union. Hammad did a great job to describe the overview of the entire Windows Azure core components and building block.
The second session was delivered by Faizal about Windows Azure Web Site. The session was more demo-centric and covers many ways deploying website on Windows Azure Web Sites (code name Antares).
After lunch, Hammad continued his next topic about Azure Mobile Service. Regardless what mobile platform you’re using (iOS, Android, Windows Phone), Mobile Services takes care of the backend for you.
The subsequent one was my session that describe about Windows Azure Cloud Services. But I took a different approach of delivery.
The first part illustrated about the basic concept of Windows Azure Cloud Services including the roles, service model, SDK, and deployment. I believe people would love the second part more as I illustrated on of the project as the case study. How to design a cloud application with various component on Windows Azure.
The last session was delivered by Richard Qi, the infra guy. Richard explained Windows Azure IaaS covering Virtual Machine and Virtual Network. He also covers a few possible scenario to deploy key server apps such as SQL Server and SharePoint on Azure VM.
And here’re some of Microsoft & MVP folks, thanks for your assistance on the event as well.
After all sessions were done, we spent some time to have the lucky draw, sponsored by global sponsor. And here are some of the winners. Congratulations
We would like to thank a lots of people to make this happen successful:
