Windows Azure provides scalable data and processing resources for businesses of almost any size. Steve Fox and Paul Stubbs are going to be presenting a PreCon seminar at TechEd ("Windows Azure University Bootcamp: Advanced and Real-World"), so I invited them onto the show to discuss Windows Azure and provide some quick details on why you might want to pay attention to this technology.
If you're planning on coming to TechEd in either North America or Europe, you might want to look into their PreCon seminar, as well as provide details in the discussion area below as to what you'd like to learn about Windows Azure.
