A conference by AZUG, the Belgium Microsoft Azure User Group

Saturday November 28, 2015

About CloudBrew

  • Microsoft Azure

    A full day of Microsoft Azure! We will have some local and international speakers who will share their knowledge and experience. Two tracks, 6 sessions each.

  • Beer sampling

    The event will take place at a brewery! We'll have warm lunch (3 courses) and a guided brewery tour and beer tasting. But no worries! We'll have plenty of coffee and soda, too.

  • Small scale

    We intentionally keep CloudBrew small-scale. This gives the event a more intimate feeling. It also allows us to keep the cost low, providing a day of learning that's really worth everyone's valuable time.

  • Community

    Organized by AZUG, the Belgium Microsoft Azure User Group, CloudBrew originates from the community. Both you and our speakers are part of it. Ideal to network with peers!
