Track - Azure Cloud

<p>There is little question that today’s software developer must embrace cloud technologies to create compelling applications. First, is the sheer number of users and of devices. Over one third of earth’s population is connected to the Internet. Second, there are now more devices connected to the internet than there are people. Third, mobile data traffic grew 2.3-fold in 2011, more than doubling for the fourth year in a row. When all is said and done you end up with a very simple conclusion – modern applications require connectivity to the cloud. </p> <p> <br/> Windows Azure is the Microsoft cloud, and it enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any operating system, language or tool. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment. Windows Azure enables you to use any language, framework, or tool to build applications. Features and services are exposed using open REST protocols. The Windows Azure client libraries are available for multiple programming languages, and are released under an open source license and hosted on GitHub.</p>
