Tired of hearing all of the hyped-up marketing talk from MicroSoft regarding cloud computing
with Windows Azure?  Have you read all the articles or seen the talks that go into great detail
on Azure features that just do not pertain to how you do business?  Us, too!   At this month’s
St. Louis .NET User Group main meeting  will provide us with a true developer overview and
demo of both Windows Azure and SQL Azure.  This information will come from directly from
his own real-world experience, based on ...

In addition to the Microsoft-specific platform, Kevin will also introduce a number of valuable
third-party tools, and the best techniques to use them for betting monitoring of your Azure
accounts and applications.  Finally, the talk will address how best to prepare your new and
existing applications for hosting in a production Azure environment.

TEMPORARY LOCATION: Bridgeton Trails Branch of the St. Louis County Library

TEMPORARY TIME FROM 7:30 PM TO 9:00 PM.

You are invited to attend our meetings. They are usually held on the first Thursday of every month
from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Meetings are free and open to the public.
A one dollar donation may be made toward the cost of the room; otherwise, we have no membership
dues or other charges for the meetings. So, please join us at our next meeting or event for fun,
knowledge and networking. All hardware, operating systems and software are explored.

This group welcomes new PC user hardware and software configuration problems because it is
fun to fix them.  Help with Linux, other Operating Systems and hardware problems is usually available.
This is the oldest, continuously running computer mtng in the St.L. area.

# We hold a Linux Configuration Workshop when nothing else more interesting comes up, or when there
is no other event or activity scheduled. Problems with other operating systems and hardware are also
frequently fixed. New software tools are often demonstrated. Linux is an Internet capable
Networking Operating System that provides many fully functional applications that perform well on both
older and new computers. Most Linux distributions are free or low cost and provides an extremely
reliable and cost effective alternative to high priced proprietary software.

# The workshop is where we usually examine, troubleshoot, fix and repair difficult hardware and
software configuration problems for Linux newcomers.

# Bring your Linux PC to our hands on workshop to troubleshoot your Linux installation, network
connection or X Window GUI configuration problem. We have full connectivity to the Internet on
site and know how to use it. # Just remember to bring your PC, monitor, keyboard, mouse,
cables, cords, power strips and two diskettes.
