I first heard about the Global Windows Azure Boot Camp in February, while attending the Microsoft MVP Summit. Azure MVP Magnus Mårtensson told me about a day that he and his cohorts were planning when cities all over the world would simultaneously host an event designed to teach people about cloud computing and Windows Azure. Students, instructors, and organizers in each city would be able to collaborate and order to learn more about this exciting technology.

It's two months later and I find myself preparing to host one of these boot camps - this one in Southfield, MI. My friend Mike Wood is helping to organize the event, both globally and in Columbus, OH and he forwarded to me some people in Michigan who had heard about the event and were prepared to drive to Columbus to attend.

So I began planning and it is now rolling forward at full speed. 65 people have already registered for the Detroit Azure Boot Camp. I've enlisted the help of Victor Szalma and Susan Yount to help present some material; and Brian Korzynski and Ed Hanlon will be assisting with the logistics. Sogeti and Microsoft agreed to sponsor the event, which means we can keep it free and provide lunch for everyone.

Each attendee should bring a laptop with Windows 7 or 8; Visual Studio; and the Windows Azure Training Kit installed. In addition, they should sign up for a Windows Azure account prior to arriving at the event.

The format will be a combination of classroom-style presentations and hands-on labs and the goal is to give each student a basic understanding of Azure, some hands-on experience and a chance to dive as deeply as they can.
