|This blog is based on a lab exercise in the Windows Azure Platform training Kit.
The lab is called Introduction to Windows Azure Marketplace DataMarket.
I ran through the lab to see if I could get it to work. And it does work.
|The basic first steps in the lab:
|Step 1 -Signing Up
||Navigate to https://datamarket.azure.com/ and use your Windows Live ID to sign up.
|Step 2 - Fill in Account Details
||Name, email address, etc. Agree to DataMarket privacy policies. Click the Continue button.
|Step 3 -Explore your account keys
||The lab instructs you to go to My Account to get account keys. Your account key is used to access the data from client applications.
|Step 4 - Browsing the data sources
||You can navigate the DataMarket to find the data that makes sense to you.
