Windows Azure Boot camp – Raleigh Wednesday June 23, 2010 * FREE*

Yes I know this is my second blog post about the free one-day Windows Azure boot camp on June 23rd in Raleigh, NC. What can I say I don’t want anyone to miss out on an opportunity to take advantage of some free Windows Azure training. Microsoft Developer Evangelist Brian Hitney and I will be presenting a one-day Windows Azure boot camp on June 23rd in Raleigh, NC at the Microsoft RTP offices. For more information on content, what to bring, directions, etc. just click here to go to the information and registration page for the Raleigh event. To find other dates and locations for the Windows Azure boot camps  head over to the Windows Azure Boot Camp page.

Brian and I hope to see you there!

Have a day. :-|

Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio 1.2 (June 2010)

I have good news! Microsoft has released the June 2010 Windows Azure Tools + SDK. These new tools extend Visual Studio (both VS 2010 & VS 2008) for Windows Azure development. With these tools you can create, configure, debug, build, run, and deploy scalable web apps on Windows Azure.

At first glance what I see as some of the most interesting points of interest are the fact that Visual Studio 2010 RTM is fully supported as well as .NET 4 support. You can choose to build your apps with the .NET 3.5 or .NET 4 frameworks. Another area of interest that I’ll be digging into is the cloud storage explorer. It provides a read-only view of your Windows Azure tables and blob containers from within Visual Studio via the Server Explorer.

I’m sure I’ll have more to say about the Windows Azure Tools as I dig deeper…

Have a day. :-|
