How does learning about cloud computing while contributing to scientific research sound to you? Join us for @home with Windows Azure to get a solid understanding of the Windows Azure platform while giving back to a very deserving cause.
You will deploy an application to Windows Azure that directly contributes to Stanford University's Folding@home effort, a distributed computing project that carries out simulations of protein folding. By simply running a piece of software, you can help scientists learn more about diseases like Alzheimer's, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease and many cancers through banding together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world.
In addition to contributing directly to this project, Microsoft is donating $10 per participant to Stanford University to help the cause (up to $5,000 maximum).
Here's how you can learn the cloud – and contribute to some important scientific research:
