Architecting and developing for Windows Azure

When people tell me I’ve got my head in the cloud(s), it’s a pretty fair accusation. Actually, I take it as a compliment.

I spent last week with the good folk at Microsoft Corp in Redmond, and amongst other new and exciting things, I was interviewed by Robert Hess for The Knowledge Chamber show on Microsoft’s Channel 9.

The topic of the day is Architecting and Developing for Windows Azure, which just so happens to be the subject of the workshop I am giving at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC) (or here on Twitter) in Los Angeles in November.

Without giving too much away, I loosely touch on Azure’s efficiency of resources, scale and elasticity and finally deployment, security and management. Azure’s capabilities, which are only still being discovered, bring unprecedented cost benefits to businesses, and it’s exciting to be able to be doing some Azure arm-waving around the globe.
