There are more than 50 sessions lined up and the faculty are architects from Microsoft with more than 12-13 years of experience.

The first day was immensely enlightening with the focus on a brand new technology that Microsoft is betting big time on -Windows Azure. Microsoft’s enthusiasm on Cloud is contagious with more and more people trying out and writing about it. Being still occupied with trying to unravel Rotor, I am yet to download the Windows Azure SDK and try it out. Will have to hurry though, the trainer mentioned that the tokens used to download the SDK might not be free after December.
