Microsoft Research and the Inter-University Computation Center are delighted to offer, three one-day hands-on technical training events for academic researchers interested in cloud computing using Microsoft Azure. This is part of our Microsoft Azure for Research program – http://www.azure4research.com
Three, free of charge, one-day training events will be held:
· Technion Computer Engineering Center hosted training on Monday November 10th – Register here
· Ben-Gurion University hosted training on Tuesday November 11th – Register here
· Tel Aviv University hosted training on Wednesday November 12th – Register here
Attendees will be able to access Microsoft Azure on their own laptop or desktop computers during the training, and receive a three month Microsoft Azure Pass for evaluation purposes. The course will also provide an opportunity to learn more about receiving a significant Windows Azure 12-month grant for research, joining one of over 300 projects worldwide using the Cloud (proposals can submitted via the online submission site).
Microsoft Azure is a general, open, and flexible global cloud platform supporting any language, tool, or framework – including Linux, Java, Python, and other non-Microsoft technologies. The program will cover a variety of "hands-on labs" with programming examples predominantly in Python and Java. No prior experience of Microsoft Azure is required. The only prerequisite is basic programming experience in some language. This one-day course is presented by specialized trainers and is geared towards research faculty, post-doctoral researchers, postgraduate students and lab engineers.
Please forward this invitation to your research colleagues and friends, who are welcome to attend.
