About the Event

The program will cover a variety of "hands-on labs" with programming examples predominantly in Python and Java. No prior experience of cloud computing or Windows Azure is expected. The only prerequisite is some programming experience. This two-day course is presented by specialized trainers and is geared towards post-doctoral researchers, research faculty, and of course, graduate research students.

Attendees will be able to access Windows Azure on their own laptop during the training and for evaluation purposes for up to six months after the event. The attendee's laptop does not need to have the Windows operating system installed – Windows Azure is accessed via an Internet browser. After attending the course, researchers will feel confident in applying cloud computing in their current and future research.
