TROY - Troy University's Sorrell College of Business will be in class Saturday when it hosts for the second year the Global Azure Bootcamp.
The 100-person class is full, and the TROY site is one of about 180 sites in 65 countries that will host the deep-dive session into Microsoft Azure, a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and information technology professionals use to build, deploy and manage applications through Microsoft's global network of data centers.
"This is the fifth year the Azure community has organized this worldwide event, and the second straight year we have presented it here at Troy University," said Sven Aelterman, the College of Business' IT director. "We will have attendees from Mobile and Birmingham and everywhere in between."
Aelterman said that while the event is supported by several sponsors, including Microsoft, it is completely independent and community-driven with the goal of providing the catalyst for Azure communities to grow around the world.
This year's Bootcamp offers tracks for developers, data and IT professionals. The TROY Bootcamp sessions are lead by six IT professionals with backgrounds in business, education, the military and development.
