Microsoft's Window Azure team just released four new Getting Started Tutorials that will help developers and IT pros who are interested in trying out Windows Azure to get up-and-running quickly.
In addition to these tutorials, the team has also launched a new tutorials section on the Windows Azure product website that catalogs tutorial content covering all aspects of the Azure platform, announced Windows Azure team blog.
"The new tutorial landing pages bring together the best Azure tutorials from across several Microsoft sites and group them by task and experience level to make it easy to identify the tutorial that best meets your needs. For example, if you want to move an existing application to Azure, check out Migrate Services and Data Tutorials; if you need to add authentication to an existing Azure application, try Control Access Tutorials," informs Winsows Azure team.
The new getting started tutorials cover several common scenarios:
- Installing the SDK and Getting a Subscription walks through the process of setting up a Windows Azure development environment and registering for a Windows Azure subscription.
- Deploying a Windows Azure Sample Application describes how to deploy and configure a pre-packaged Windows Azure application.
- Developing a Windows Azure Hello World Application Using ASP.NET MVC 3 describes how to create a basic web application and deploy it to Windows Azure.
- Developing a Windows Azure Data Application Using Code First and SQL Azure expands on the Hello World application by using the Entity Framework Code First feature to add a SQL Azure database component.
