Global Windows Azure Bootcamp NL

Last Saturday there was the Worldwide Global Windows Azure Bootcamp. In The Netherlands this was organized by WAZUG and SDN. The program contained a Windows Azure introduction by Marcel Meijer and after the lunch a session about HD Insight by Dennis Mulder. In the meantime there was the possibility to work on the Hands-on labs of the Windows Azure trainings kit. Patriek van Dorp, Dennis Mulder, Edwin van Wijk and Marcel Meijer were available for questions and helping with solving problems.

At the end of the event there was Worldwide experiment. All countries run the Kinect and Windows Azure WorkerRoles of Alan Smith. The Netherlands did a nice job! In 21 Countries in a timespan of 24 hours the Render Farm rendered 724059 frames by 9793 WorkerRole instances. Normally this should have taken 4.5 year. Which would cost $249.955,- but now it cost allmost nothing! Almost everyone used his/hers MSDN free compute hours or used a free Windows Azure trail.

Again a great event! We thank our local sponsors for their support.
