Back in May and June I jointly run a highly successful (IMVHO) training programme on the Windows Azure Platform over a six week period for UK developers (Check out some stats/background).

We have been discussing how we can take that format forward and I am pleased to say we have our first “spin off”. Namely the  “Windows Azure Platform – Accelerated Virtual Training Workshop” which will take place in October. Yippeee.

The training will be delivered over a two week period and combines instructor led sessions (delivered virtually over Live Meeting) with independent distance learning, email support and access to hands-on practical exercises. The training provides delegates with an opportunity to gain insight into the nature and benefits of the Windows Azure Platform

Sounds ridiculous in this day and age but I have the best connection available to me but it isn't good enough for this kind of thing.

OK, You guys in the smoke need to support us little guys out in the sticks when those initiatives for 100% fast Broadband coverage come around.

Thank you for listening.

As someone that took it, I can confirm that the 6 week training program was definitely a fantastic insight into the world of everything Azure.
