Posted by mruwe at January 22 2016, 12:13 PM

Fellow .Net Users,

Welcome to 2016! We have a full year of .Net (and other related technologies) ahead and I'm excited to get it started. Our next .Net UG meeting will take place on Thursday January 28th starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drink will be served 15-20 minutes before the start of the meeting. Our sponsor for this month has a history of bringing something other than pizza (probably something BBQ) so keep that in mind.

Topic
To the Cloud with Azure Storage!
The Azure cloud has exploded in growth over the last few years. Offering a wide range of features and tools it is truly poised to make your data centers obsolete. While I would love to talk about all the features Azure has to offer, I am certain it would take way more than 90 minutes to cover. Instead we are going to focus on one little corer of the Azure cloud. We will talk about Azure storage including Table Storage, Blob Storage and Queues. These features make up a tiny bit of what Azure has, but these are foundational features in the Azure cloud. Knowing how to use them can make a big difference in your solution.
