Are you interested in learning about cloud computing? Of course, there's
MapReduce... but recently a new service has arrived on the scene:
Microsoft's Azure platform. Interested in learning more about it?
We've received an invitation from Microsoft to participate in their
academic pilot program. More information at the following URL:
This is an opportunity for you to poke around in Azure... our colleagues
at Microsoft are primarily interested in getting feedback about their
product. There are no expectations with participating in this pilot:
play around as much or as little as you'd like. However, doing cool
stuff would be a bonus! Azure worked with .NET, so previously
programming experience in that environment would be helpful.
If you'd like to participate, please email Srinivas Deshraju
([log in to unmask]), who is coordinating this project.
