One thing I get lot of questions all the time privately is the detailed steps on how to setup the provider hosted apps to be running in Windows Azure. One common question is that how the personal site branding app can be setup properly with Office365 tenant.
To show this one in practice, I’ve created quick video where we install the personal site branding app to Windows Azure and configure it to work in Office365 for any user. This is pretty easy task, but wanted to ensure that you can actually achieve this as well easily by mimicking the steps from this video. There are obviously lot of additional other capabilities in Windows Azure, but this should help you to get started with the provider hosted apps for Office365.
Video is available for download from my SkyDrive if needed for offline purposes.
