The biggest advantage of cloud computing is at the same time the biggest challenge: flexibility
With classical systems we had only slight changes in between major versions. Public clouds like Azure deliver new or enhanced features nearly on a weekly basis. Keeping pace with all features and options as they grow is nearly impossible for developers and IT Pros out there. To help getting out of this dilemma and to establish platforms for discussion and exchange, a new form of community is growing world wide: Azure Meetups
In Germany alone, 15 of these regional meetups are currently growing. As my home region Lower Saxony was still a white spot on the Azure community landscape, we decided to initiate a meetup group here, the Südniedersachsen Azure Meetup. We already have a date for the kick-off event:
We found a few generous sponsors as well: New Horizons will supply us with a location and technical equipment and Microsoft will make sure no one has to go home hungry or thirsty, by offering pizza, beer and soft drinks. We might even have some cool giveaways 😉
If you are interested in Azure, Azure Stack or OMS and Hanover is not to far from you, you are welcome! Even if this date doesn’t fit your schedule, feel free to register here, as this will not be last event of its kind.
See you in Hanover!
