Title: Windows Azure Design Patterns


Abstract: One of the challenges in adopting a new platform is finding
usable design patterns that work for developing effective solutions. The Catch-22
is that design patterns are discovered and not invented. Nevertheless it is important
to have some guidance on what design patterns make sense early in the game.

This webcast attacks the problem through a set of application scenario contexts, Azure
features and solution examples. It is unique in its approach and the fact that it
includes the use of features from all components of the Windows Azure Platform including
the Windows Azure OS, Windows Azure AppFabric and SQL Azure. In this webcast you will
learn about the components of the Windows Azure Platform that can be used to solve
specific business problems.
