Windows Azure Training Kit



Microsoft has just released a new Training Kit  for Windows Azure that updates the one released at the PDC. Not since Windows Communication Foundation and WPF have I been so exited about a new technology, but Windows Azure is it.


If you are not really sure what Azure is, it is a set of services that can be wired together with custom Cloud services to create dynamically scaling services and applications. It’s a little more complicated than that 😉 but you get the jist.


The Live services piece is the cream of the crop for providing services to your applications. I am still trying to get access to the CTP so I can super charge my TFS Sticky Buddy application….

The Azure Services Training Kit February update now includes the following content covering Windows Azure, .NET Services, SQL Services, and Live Services:

  • 13 hands-on labs – including 3 new hands-on labs for the Live Framework & Services
  • 19 new demo scripts – These demo scripts are designed to provide detailed walkthroughs of key features so that someone can easily give a demo of a service
  • 10 new scripted presentations – the presentations used for our 3 day training workshops including detailed speaker notes.
