Hands-on Visual Studio 2012 Workshops - What to do with your free Azure MSDN subscription.

I run workshops. Instead of boring lectures, I give the attendees the opportunity to get real hands-on experience and feel the scenario instead of listing only. Specially the Visual Studio 2012 ALM scenario’s are really nice, the attendees work together on a scenario like: code review, feedback, agile planning and testing.   I run these workshops with Azure Virtual Machines, every attendee has it’s own environment on Azure prepared and configured by me for that specific workshop. After I created an image (see: How to Capture an Image of a Virtual Machine) one day ahead of the workshop, I start creating Azure VM’s just before the workshop starts (see: Create a Virtual Machine)...
