Building on the exceptional success of last year’s edition, Global Azure Bootcamp 2014 (#GlobalAzure) is a free one-day training event, taking place on the 25th of April 2015 in several venues worldwide, driven by local Microsoft Azure community enthusiasts and experts. It consists of a day of sessions and labs based on the Microsoft Azure Readiness Kit or custom content. The event has been originally designed by 5 Microsoft Azure MVPs in order to benefit the local community members and teach essential Microsoft Azure skills and know-how. While supported by several sponsors, including Microsoft, the event is completely independent and community-driven.

Global Azure Bootcamp 2014 took place in March 2014, and ran at 136 locations in 54 countries on the same day, including countries like Nepal and Mauritius – possibly the largest community event ever. Approx. 480 organizers welcomed about 5,600 attendees. The event also featured a charity lab where attendees deployed virtual machines into Azure to help analyse data for diabetes research.

This year we want to again offer up a one day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands on labs will feature pooling a huge global compute farm to perform diabetes research!
