I’ll be running a session covering how we built this game around Windows Azure, and you’ll have a chance to deploy your own game instance live to your very own corner of the cloud. We’ll have a few prizes on hand as well – including a Microsoft Kinect!
To fully participate, bring your laptop (Windows Vista or Windows 7) and :
- Install Visual Studio 2010 Professional (or higher) or Visual Web Developer Express 2010 (a free download)
- Install the Windows Azure SDK for .NET
- Provision a no-risk, free 3-month Windows Azure trial account (see my screencast for a walkthrough).
If you don’t have Windows Vista or Windows 7, don’t let that stop you from coming! You’ll still be able to play along, we just may buddy you up with someone!
