As already announced I will start at Mai 07th.2012 with regular semester lecture at University of Applied Sciences in Frankfurt am Main. The session will be focused on cloud computing based on Windows Azure. Fortunately the content will focus common industry technology which I usually present on conferences for developers. Of course it will be slightly adopted for students and their needs.

Following list contains topics which I will cover in 16 hours (8 sessions). Please not that content might be slightly changed. Unfortunately at the moment it is not possible to exactly define the content of each session. However the order of topics will be probably covered in the given order. That means we will start with not very complex topics and end with more sophisticated architecture patterns.

Note the lecture and all content is in English, because it focuses European Master students who study in Frankfurt.

How one lesion will look like?

I will cover sessions the same way as I do at conferences. Each lesion will be consisted of Power Point (15-max. 30 slides in 1,5h) part and many practical demos. All demos will be presented in C#. For this reason it would be nice to have a knowledge of this language and .NET. Fortunately demos will not be focused on sophisticated language features and they will not have a lot of code. This way every student should be able to understand the most important code parts. We will more focus on patterns and less on language features.
If you do not know any programming language, this curse might not be optimal one.

Who can attend?

If you are regular student in Frankfurt you can by definition visit the lecture. It is your one and you already know that. If you are anybody else you will have to register for the lecture. All other students are also welcome.

How can I register ?

If you are not a student you can register by purchasing the lecture. To do that you will have to pay 21 EUR fee to GFTW and additionally 119 EUR  to daenet. You can enter the class-room by showing the both  receipts (überweisungsschein/letter of referral) as approval for payment. Note, members of User Group Frankfurt have an discount. Their fee is 79 EUR.

Can I get some certificate at the end?

Yes, all attendees will get confirmation participation issued  by GFTW and Microsoft (two certificates). Currently I do not know how many lessons at lest you will have to visit. If you ask me then, I would suggest you to attend all lessons.

Last but not least

I’m glad to see you there:
