It’s Midnight of March, 29th. Today is the GWAB Day. W0000t?

GWAB_logoGWAB – better known as Global Windows Azure Bootcamp is the second and last global event oriented to Windows Azure (keep mind for news from BUILD Conference in USA). One Year ago I was an attendee of FIRST AND ONLY ONE event in Poland, in Wroclaw. We played with rendering project and for few hours we have been in TOP10 in the World! This year is a little different, especially that I’m not only attendee, I’m speaking too.

GWAB – “In April of 2013 we held the first Global Windows Azure Bootcamp at more than 90 locations around the globe! This year we are again again offering up a one day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands on labs are pooling ahuge global compute farm to perform diabetes research.

In Poland this year GWAB will be held in four cities Wrocław, Warsaw, Katowice and Szczecin. Most important and best place for it is of course in Wrocław (my city). But we are very happy to having competitors in different cities, especially that in all cities organizers focusing on different subjects and values of Microsoft Cloud Services. Of course based on different time zones – GWAB is now running and statistics too:
