The March meeting featured Buck Woody entertaining us about “The Cloud” (Azure) and SQL Azure. It was a fun and great presentation, and 66 folks came to hear and learn –and I’m sure many left with a better idea of where “The Cloud” will fit in their future plans. Buck blogged about the presentation here, and a recording of the session is available here. Apex Systems provided tasty and healthy food from Subway.
