What’s New in Windows Azure


One of the benefits of cloud computing platforms such as Windows Azure is being able to quickly take advantage of new technology innovations.  This also makes it difficult to understand what features are available, and how to best utilize them in our applications.  The Windows Azure platform is constantly growing and evolving.  In this session we will take a quick look back at major milestones in Windows Azure’s relatively brief history, and then proceed into reviewing recent platform updates and new features now available.  Coming away you will have a solid understanding of Windows Azure platform features now ready for you to use in your applications.


Michael Collier is a Windows Azure MVP and serves as a National Architect for Neudesic, a Microsoft SI partner that specializes in Windows Azure. He has nearly 11 years of experience building Microsoft-based applications for a wide range of clients. Michael spends his days serving as a developer or architect – helping clients succeed with the Microsoft development platform. He gets very “geeked up” about any new technology, tool, or technique that makes his development life easier. Michael spends most of his spare time reading technology blogs and exploring new development technologies. He is also an avid golfer and attempts to be good at shooters on the Xbox 360. Previous speaking engagements include Central Ohio Day of .NET, Central Ohio .NET Developers Group, Cloud Connections, Cloud Expo, and multiple Windows Azure Boot Camp events.
