Making the Most Out of the Azure Dev/Test Labs

One of the best lesser known features of Azure are the Dev/Test Labs. The Dev/Test Labs are just what it's name implies - a place in the cloud where you can develop and test your code and applications, and have a bit of fun playing with new technology as well. The advantage of using this service is all of the options that are given to you and all of the possibilities of it's use, some of which are still to be discovered. Mixed team development, QA testing across the globe, or just a sandbox for you to play around in - it's all here. in this session we will take a walk-through of the Labs and do some demo's around setting it up, setting up multiple labs, configuring them, and assigning users, as well as other options.
