All About Access in an Azure VM

George Young, Dawson Butte Software

Hosting your Access application in an Azure Virtual Machine (VM) has a number of benefits, including remote availability, single-machine installation and configuration, and support for non-Windows user environments. Join us as DAAUG President George Young presents all you need to know about setting up an Azure VM and hosting your Access application in it.

George first encountered Microsoft Access when using the thirty-plus floppy disk versions of Office to teach Statistics and MIS in the early 1990’s. It’s been true love ever since. George has worked as a software developer for the past twenty-five years, half of that time at Microsoft (in just about every group other than Office). He is the founder and president of Dawson Butte Software, working primarily on .NET applications (often with Access somewhere in the mix), and is the DAAUG President. George still has a commercial site or two that is driven by an Access database sitting in the server file system.
