It’s time to accept the hype – “the cloud” is a component of applications going forward. This will be a code-heavy session were we’ll walk through building and deploying a Windows Azure application. What new tools will you need? What new skills will you need? What are the best resources to keep at the end of your mouse? In this session we’ll discuss all these points and more. We will see how easy it is to build on existing skillsets to develop an application that takes advantage of several of the services available on the Windows Azure platform.
