Windows Azure – Getting Started

Windows Azure – so where do you get started? Some links:

I’ve done articles on Amazon’s EC2 and Google’s AppEngine – so I guess I’m obligated to do an Azure article, right? 🙂

I do have an Azure idea in the works. It’s not very exciting to write an app that is barely different to something I could do on my cheap ASP.NET hosting. Something that cheap hosting doesn’t offer is an easy way to write a background processing application such as the Azure worker role. So I’ve revived a ‘shelved’ screen scraping application. The idea is to pull down all the comments on Slashdot articles, and generate some visualization of the comments growing over time.
