Think You Know Windows Azure? Think Again.

Throughout the weeks, you’ve read various posts here on the Canadian Developer Connection about Windows Azure. Each one is geared to get you familiar with the platform and help you understand when and where you can use the Cloud, and ultimately, Windows Azure. But just when you thought you that you had it all down packed – think again!

What?!?!?

That’s right. I did say “think again”. That’s not to say that you have to forget what you’ve learned thus far. It’s to say that now, there’s much more to learn! (like the motto for TechDays and TechDays Online – “Because there’s always more to learn…”). Over the next month, I invite you to spend some time exploring the latest innovations in the platform and discover the opportunities you can take advantage of.
