May 2018 Meetup

For the Monday, May 14th meetup we will welcome Raymond Ullery back for a full session to provide more insights into migrating a large scale healthcare solution to Azure. You may have seen Raymond present a brief version of this at the March lightning talks. There was a lot of interest in this topic at that time, and we’re thrilled Raymond can join us in May for a more involved session.

Please RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/Central-Ohio-Azure/events/wvzvqlyxhbsb/. RSVP’ing will help us with logistics, especially getting food and drinks from our most excellent sponsors!
