These resources have been designed to help you learn how to build applications that use Windows Azure services.
This technical content covers several of the new Windows Azure features including:
- Windows Azure Web Sites
- Virtual Machines
- The new Management Portal
- New SDK and tools.
The October update includes updated hands-on labs to use the latest version of Visual Studio 2012 and Windows 8, new demos and presentations.
The training kit (available for download here) is the most authoritative learning resource on Windows Azure.
I highly recommend that you download the training kit, review the presentations and go through the Hands On Labs and include these resources into your teaching materials.
Windows Azure Virtual Labs
Test drive Windows Azure solutions in a virtual lab and see how you can quickly and easily develop applications running in the cloud by using your existing skills with the Microsoft Visual Studio development environment and the Microsoft .NET Framework. Virtual labs are simple, with no complex setup or installation required.
