Azure Readiness Resources

After a long haitus I am back. I will make every effort to blog more frequently. As I work with clients and partners one of the thing I am constantly asked about is Azure resources. I am going to use this blog post to keep a running list of resources as I become aware of them.

Windows Azure Home

This has everything from case studies, development tools, account management and documentation.

Windows Azure Portal

This is the portal you need to use to manage Windows Azure Services

Windows Azure Platform Training Kit

Microsoft frequently updates this training kit to include the latest features. Here is the latest training kit as of 1/28/2012.

This training kit has labs and resources that show you how to use WIF, ACS etc.
These are constantly updated with practical tips based on real world experience.

Cloud Cover Show

It is funny and informative.

Free Books

Any one developing applications on Azure will benefit from this. It has many useful resources include Auto-Scaling application block and Transient Error Handling application block
