SQL Saturday 157 Azure SQL Database Presentations and Demos

This is an awesome jam packed weekend for me.  I had the Windows8 Dev Camp yesterday, and SQL Saturday 157 today.  If you are a Database Professional (DBA or Dev) and don’t know about SQL Saturday’s, do your self a favor and find out about them! They are free (or extremely inexpensive) events held on Saturdays at locations all around the world.  They are organized by local members of your community and supported by PAAS. If you don’t see a SQL Saturday in your region, maybe you could help get one organized!

Anyhow, at the SQL Saturday #157 in San Diego today I have two sessions.  You can grab my slides and demos here:

Windows Azure Mobile Services Demo at Windows 8 Dev Camp LA

I love the Dev Camps we have been running lately because it gives me a great opportunity to show off all the great things we are doing around Windows 8 and Windows Azure.  Case in point, at the Windows 8 Dev Camp in LA today (09/14/2012) I will be presenting on “Windows Azure Mobile Services”.


Windows Azure Mobile Services” makes it super simple to create a cloud back-end for your Windows 8 WinRT apps.  It provides you a way to manage data, authentication, and push notifications.  Along with that you can scale your services as your app grows in popularity!  Very cool. 

Feel free to grab my demos and slides from today, and if you haven’t gotten a chance to go through the “Windows Azure Mobile Hands-On-Labs”, give them a try!
