Screencast Published – Building an Azure App Part I: Setup and Hello World


I have released the 1st screencast of a multi-part series where I will be building an Azure application from the ground up.  The application will be a shopping cart application with a Silverlight Front End.  The goal of this application is to illustrate various features of Windows Azure and in coming weeks, portions of .NET Services.  The first few posts will concentrate on Windows Azure, our Cloud Operating System.  I will illustrate things like the developer fabric, hosting various pieces of an application in the cloud (web pages, services, Silverlight components), as well as working with Azure Table Storage.  From there, we will keep going, adding and updating pieces of the application.
In this screencast (Part I), I will illustrate how to get your development environment, as well as a Windows Azure Hosted Services Project set up.  He will then build a simple "Hello, World" application, run and debug it locally and finally deploy it to the cloud. 
You can also read my Blog Post for great documentation on how to get your environment set up!
