About the Sponsor – Microsoft

Many thanks to Microsoft for sponsoring the venue for Techweekend. Microsoft wants to get more closely involved with the tech community in Pune, and particularly the open source enthusiasts – with the intention of making everybody aware that their cloud technologies (like Azure) actually play well with open source, and that you can deploy your php applications, your drupal/joomla installs on Azure.


It is from 10am to 1pm on Saturday 15th January at the Sumant Moolgaonkar Auditorium, Ground Floor, Wing A, ICC Trade Towers, SB Road. As usual, TechWeekend is free for anyone to attend, but please register here.
