The Global Windows Azure Bootcamp is a one day deep dive session to get you developing on Windows Azure. This is a global event organised by the community for the community. There will be a number of events held at locations across the globe. This event will happen on April 27th, 2013 and Black Marble will be hosting one of the UK events at our offices near Bradford.

We’ve just come back from the Imagine Cup NE hackathon in Newcastle. We had a great time with all the students from Universities and Colleges around the NE of England. Rik has written a good blog post about it. As always I am impressed by the young talent there and there was a number of good ideas. This year the Imagine Cup world finals are being held in St. Petersburg in Russia with three main competitions:
- World Citizenship
There were entries in all three categories. The two day hack consisted of a series of talk/presentations from MVPs and other industry experts who also provided support and guidance for the teams throughout the 2 days.
At the end of the two days the teams had 10 minutes to present their ideas and be “grilled” in a Q & A session. All teams equipped themselves well.
Helping out with the Imagine Cup not only helps the new generation of software developer, it also inspires us to be better at what we do. There’s some good young talent that are going to give us a good run for our money in a few years time. We’d better be ready for them
