Windows Azure Guidance – New Code & Doc drop on CodePlex

We are almost content complete for our first Windows Azure Architecture Guide (the most probable name for our book). Available for download today:

  1. New updated samples, including all file processing and background tasks (lot’s of small nuggets in there, such as use of multiple tasks in a single Worker, continuation tokens, data model optimization, etc). Most of this has been discussed in previous posts.
  2. 7 Chapters of the guide are now available. Again, I’ve been covering most of this in previous blogs posts, but these are much nicer thanks to the work of our technical writing team: Dominic Betts, Colin Campbell and Roberta Leibovitz.

Let us know what you think. I hope to hand this over to the production team so we can move on to the next scenario.More on this soon.

    Hey its good to see some stuff coming out of P&P around Azure. I have only glanced over it briefly and will go through it in detail in a few more days. What I am hoping to see is some focus on architecture, particularly the relevance of NoSQL and data partitioning, applying SOA, and the relationships of other architectural styles to the Azure platform.

  4. Thanks Steven!

    We do have some coverage on design, data tier considerations, etc. but just to set expectations, this guide is probably most useful for developers who are *new* to Windows Azure and the cloud in general. An experienced developer like yourself, probably will find few things that you don’t know already.

    Any feedback is greatly welcome anyway of course!
