I also listened to Herding code episode 171, Magnus Mårtensson on Azure.
At NDC, Jon and K Scott talked to Magnus Martensson about continuous delivery on the Windows Azure platform and the Global Windows Azure Bootcamp he helped run. I have to admit that I have not looked at Azure at all. I can’t drop the feeling that it’s just web hosting. If I put my site on a virtual server at my hosting company, is that different from Azure? Well, I will take a closer look at Azure, especially the tight connection to Visual Studio sounds great.
Magnus mentions the Global Windows Azure Bootcamp that took place in april. Over 5000 attendees in 92 locations ran coordinated worker roles that passed the rendering power of some Pixar films.
I’m going to check out the Windows Azure Training Kit and next time there’s a Bootcamp I’ll join it.
