After the announcement of the Azure Services platform at PDC 2008 in LA, James Conard and the Microsoft DPE Team has just released the Azure Services Training Kit. I’m proud to say that I was part of the team at Southworks who helped them achieving this amazing milestone
The kit includes labs for:
- Windows Azure
- SQL Data Services
- Live Services
- .Net Services: including labs for the Service Bus, Access Control, and Workflow Services
¬†Download the training kit here.
The training kit also references to the Azure Services Management Tools. These tools include an MMC SnapIn and Windows PowerShell cmdlets that enable a user to configure and manage several Azure Services including: SQL Data Services, .NET Access Control Services, and the .NET Workflow Services. These tools can be helpful when developing and testing applications that use Azure Services. For instance, using these tools you can easily browse and query data in SQL Data Services, view and change .NET Access Control Rules, and deploy and view workflows.
