Microsoft has begun to offer free technical training for researchers interested in taking their work to the cloud on the Windows Azure platform.

The courses offered will run for two days, and, according to Microsoft, target "active scientists who are interested in coding in a modern computing context, as well as for computer scientists who are working with such researchers".

This means that participants should have some ability to code, but no specific language is required.

The first class has already kicked off today at Seattle's University of Washington, with further courses scheduled around the world over the next 12 months.

A total of 25 classes have been tentatively scheduled. Countries that already appear to be confirmed include China, Korea, Switzerland, Israel, France, Japan, and the UK. Other countries, such as Germany, Russia, and Australia, have been pencilled in, with other regions still under consideration.
