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.
A special thanks to those who participated during the first half of 2012, as Microsoft matched your efforts with a $3880 monetary donation to Stanford's program.
