How’d we get to the end of September already? Time flies when you’ve got good reading…speaking of which, here’s this week’s reading list. As usual, topics are wide-ranging…everything from experiments in deploying to Azure using NuGet to using push notification service on the phone. Enjoy…

- xPath Values in Windows Azure: Starting with Windows Azure SDK 1.5 you can use the xPath element in a web role or a worker role service definition file to retrieve runtime configuration values.

Have a great weekend.
