The May 2009 Azure User Group meeting in Orange County is scheduled for Thursday May 28th and will be about Azure Design Patterns.

The topic for the next Azure User Group meeting is Design Patterns for cloud computing on the Azure platform. As we've seen in prior months, Azure provides oodles of functionality that spans application hosting and storage to enterprise-grade security and access control. Design patterns help you think about these capabilities in the right way and how they can be combined into composite applications. We'll cover design patterns for hosting, data, communication, synchronization, and security as well as composite application patterns that combine them. We'll be doing hands-on code demos of a number of composite applications, including a grid computing application.

If attending, please be sure to RSVP at the link below so we can properly plan ordering of pizza and beverages. We hope to see you there!
