Filed under: Uncategorized — Tudor Cret @ 12:32 pm

 

ExperienceWorks it’s a partnership program initiated by MSP from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and the local IT companies: BitStar, IQuest, ForTech and Evozon. The scope of the program is to link students, companies and academics using the common element – Microsoft technologies. This is the first edition –v.1.0.

I want to thank to all participants. It was a nice experience to share Windows Azure with you. I’ll be waiting until April 10 your email with the members of the team and the project you intend to do. You’ll have to finish it until May 1-14 when I suppose you are going to deliver it to the faculty too. Also don’t forget that we have the Windows Azure licenses – and no credit card or payment is required. As usual I’ve made a summary of the day 2. Just look below:

April 2, Windows Azure Day 2 summary:

We’ve dedicated the entire day to “Hands-on lab”. Also we’ve discussed about cloud computing patterns, scenarios and applications you can build using Windows Azure for your academic assessment and ExperienceWorks’s too. Topics we’ve covered:

  • Azure storage: tables, blobs and queues
    • We’ve built and run <WATKroot>\Labs\ExploringWindowsAzureStorageVS2010
  • SQL Azure
  • Cloud Computing Patterns & Practices
    • I’ve tried to share with you some ideas, scenarios and areas that would give you a starting point for your project. Some of them are:
      • audio/video content processing
      • SaaS solutions like ticketing platforms or erp’s
      • Data backup & restore
      • Social media and online marketing
      • Other domains where fast growth represents a major requirement
