Did you know you can build and share your own Linux (and FreeBSD) VMs on Azure, at no cost? This is a great way to raise awareness of your open source project. Users can quickly fire up a VM and test your software using a free trial account. This brings significant benefit to your project and the companies providing solutions and services based upon it.

In this session we'll dig into why, from both a community and business development perspective, you would want to create and share VM image on Azure. We'll also look at just how easy it is to publish your images. Finally, we'll look at a few simple ways to use these images to build interest in your project and products.
