Running your dev / test VMs in Azure for cheap​


​With an MSDN subscription you can run your dev / test SharePoint environment in Azure IaaS for less than the cost of a cup of coffee each day. In this session we will overview the basic of what Azure IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) is, the pieces you will use to be successful deploying SharePoint in Azure, and how to use resources as efficiently as possible to reduce your costs and boost your farm performance. This session is targeted to SharePoint developers and admins. Prior knowledge of Azure is helpful but not a requirement.
