My Planned Azure Stuff
I've got some code I need to write for the company I work for which will will be putting on the cloud. Since I started working with Microsoft's cloud solution a couple of months ago, I've noticed one problem that is probably very common with early releases of technology. The samples they provide just don't cut it. Some of them are pretty good, and I've referenced them when trying to work with things. It really takes the community's involvement to really get a good bunch of articles and samples together.
Now that they've released some of this stuff, I want to try to get some simple little examples together to get people started with Windows Azure. When new stuff comes out I usually like to start with some short little programs which use the new technology.
Hello world programs seem to spring up everywhere. Those are nice, but I like to in some way use something special about the new technology. For example with WPF and Silverlight you can obviously start with a Hello World program, but you might then quickly move onto one which has some kind of spinning object or some kind of crazy animation.
With Windows Azure I plan to start with a simple example with a program that uses multiple instances of FrontEnd and Worker Processes that can work together reasonably well. This should help show how Windows Azure can scale applications. Some considerations must be made when working with the cloud. I've started one of my samples, but I haven't gotten the chance to finish it yet. When I do I will make sure to post here about it.
