A new platform is emerging—one that simplifies the process around deploying, hosting, and managing your applications, using low-cost shared infrastructure provided by a particular vendor. This type of platform is commonly referred to as "the cloud." This movement is producing a great deal of energy and excitement throughout the IT industry because of the business and technical benefits inherent in the model. In this geekSpeak, Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Aaron Skonnard explains what Microsoft is doing with cloud computing and how you can start taking advantage of "the cloud" in your applications. The geekSpeak webcast series brings you industry experts in a "talk-radio" format hosted by developer evangelists from Microsoft. These experts share their knowledge and experience about a particular developer technology and are ready to answer your questions in real time during the webcast. Your hosts for this geekSpeak are Lynn Langit and Lindsay Rutter. To ask a question in advance of the live webcast, or for post-show resources, be sure to visit the geekSpeak blog.
