Following two fantastic Azure for Research courses at Oxford eResearch Centre and the University of Manchester, Microsoft Research is holding its next free hands-on training event for academic researchers interested in cloud computing on May 7-8, 2014 at Eulerzaal, CWI, Amsterdam Science Park, Netherlands.

To read about what the course is like, check out Philip Fowler’s excellent summary of the Oxford course (Philip is a Fellow of the Institute).

The program includes a variety of hands-on labs covering Linux (and Windows) virtual machines, websites, IPython notebooks, scaling-out R and Matlab computations, cloud storage, visualisation, big data and stream processing.  Your laptop does not need to have a Windows operating system installed – Microsoft Azure is accessed via an Internet browser and fully supports Linux, Mac and Windows users.

We hope to see some of you in Amsterdam, which is very easy to get to from most anywhere in Europe.
