Dear MSDN Flash Readers,

Microsoft TechDays, which kicked off this past November, is a series of must-go events for Developers to learn about the latest Microsoft technologies. At these free events hosted at Microsoft Malaysia’s Auditorium in KLCC, you will have a chance to network with peers and experts while participating in a variety of sessions and activities exclusively designed for you.

If you can't attend, never fear - these events are recorded and then uploaded to the TechDays site together with the presentation slides of the presenters, so that even Developers who cannot attend will still be able to watch and learn from these events. The first event was Security Black Belt Day, which you can read more about below in our Top Stories this month.

From November to December, Microsoft worked with Nokia to train Developers on the Windows Phone platform in anticipation of the new Nokia Lumia Windows Phone mobiles that will hit Malaysia next year. These four workshops catered to Devs from all levels. Download the photos of the event here and see here for more details about the recent event. To develop your own Windows Phone Apps, download the FREE SDK (Software Development Kit) here.

On 24-25 November 2011, the Windows Azure HOL (Hands-On Laboratories) and 1:1 Clinics were held at Microsoft Innovation Center in Cyberjaya. Experts delivered key Azure topics to a total of 40 participants. In addition, the 1:1 Clinic provided exclusive brainstorming sessions for participants to help develop their ideas, architecture and code, as well as discussing best practices.

At our second TechDays event on 17 December, uReka Day, Microsoft Malaysia held a FREE session for local design community SiFoo.Com. At this event, we showed how you can style your site for FREE with #WebMatrix, and how you can use the power of Windows Azure to transfer large images online. If you want to develop your own Azure Apps, download the FREE SDK (Software Development Kit) @ http://www.windowsazure.com/develop (choose from .NET, Java or PHP).
