Created a Windows Azure Links page

After yesterday’s post, I’ve decided to create a single page that I’ll update whenever I get a chance with links to sites that are focusing on Windows Azure. It includes both Microsoft and Community sites. Here’s a link to it and I’ll be adding it to my sidebar in a few minutes. Feel free to…

Windows Azure Links

I’ve decided it’s probably best to have a single page I update with links to good info on Windows Azure from other peers at Microsoft as well as those coming from the community instead of posting individual entries every once in a while. If you know of some links for sites that are focusing on…

Windows 7 Support

Yesterday I spoke to two folks trying to get the Windows Azure SDK and our tools working on Windows 7. Unfortunately, we’ve found that there’s something around the time when you try to run your Azure service locally that fails. The right folks are looking into it now and we hope to have everything working in…
