Due to various reason, finally I’ve got a chance to write this post which is suppose to be written 3 weeks ago. Yes, as mentioned in the invitation, we’d our great first user group meeting of AzureUG.SG (Singapore Windows Azure User Group) at 26th January 2011. It was attended by 30 participants. For the first meeting, it’s considered a good result .
The meeting was welcomed by David Tang, Product Marketing Manager from Microsoft Singapore. In the welcome note, David mentioned about the opportunity and potential of cloud computing in Singapore ecosystem. And also the commitment from Microsoft to embrace seriously in Windows Azure. We would like to thanks to David for the support toward AzureUG.SG!
The first session was done by me, talked about Developing, Deploying,and Managing Windows Azure Application. This talk was actually derived from what Jim’s session in PDC2010. I stared my session with explaining overview of Windows Azure and complete the rest of the session with more demo. Starting with creating an application with Visual Studio,deploying it on Windows Azure Developer portal, and finally managing the deployed application via remote desktop.
The second session was done by my colleague in NCS, Faizal. Faizal discussed about Windows Azure Storage in overview first, subsequently explore more on Windows Azure Table Storage. In the subsequent user group meeting, I am sure he will talk more about Blob and Queue, let’s wait and see the future user group meeting .
We would like to thanks all for the participation and support. See you on the next user group meeting!
