According to some analysts and industry leaders, more than a quarter of applications will be available via the cloud by 2020. Additionally, by 2018, it’s approximated that there will be 8.2 billion active mobile devices around the world (that’s more than the current world population of 7.3 billion). Considering this major shift towards a greater reliance on mobile and cloud services, we’ve seen an evolution in the kinds of IT and development jobs focused on cloud computing.

But while our economy evolves to adapt to the cloud, the cloud itself evolves; someone familiar with the cloud last year could be lost on what’s happening now if they haven’t brushed up on the latest trends or haven’t gone through the proper training. Well, thanks to Microsoft, if you’re an IT professional or developer, you’re invited to attend a free technical training event aimed at helping you utilize the most out of the cloud.

Microsoft Azure Tour

This article has been brought to you in partnership with Microsoft, and on Thursday, January 14, Microsoft will kick-off its Microsoft Azure Tour in Atlanta, GA.

At the Microsoft Azure Tour, IT professionals and developers will get the opportunity to participate in a day-long, hands-on, technical training event focused on how to get the most from the Microsoft Azure platform.
