The Windows Azure Training Kit June 2012 Update is now available.   The June 2012 update includes 42 step-by-step hands-on labs and 20 presentations covering the new Windows Azure features.  Some of the highlights of this update include:

  • 12 new hands-on labs for Windows Azure Virtual Machines
  • 11 new hands-on labs for Windows Azure Web Sites
  • 2 new hands-on labs that demonstrate Windows Azure with Windows 8 Metro-style applications
  • New hands-on labs for Node.js and PHP using Mac OS X
  • Updated content for the latest Windows Azure SDKs, tools, and new Windows Azure Management Portal
  • New and updated presentations designed to support individual sessions to a full 3 day training workshops

Installing the kit is easy – and there are a lot of choices:

  1. Download Center: http://bit.ly/WATKJune2012
    Two options here – you can download the entire 213MB kit and install everything, or you download a 2.4MB “web installer” and download only the individual Hands-on-Labs or Presentations you want.
  2. GitHub: https://github.com/WindowsAzure-TrainingKit
    If you’d rather keep up directly with changes that are happening to the individual presentations and labs, I recommend you get your content through GitHub. They also offer an interface to the GitHub repository through the Windows Azure Training Kit GitHub Page. This is basically a web site interface to the data (and some metadata) about the labs and is a great way to view a summary of all the labs, with descriptions, in one easy-to-read page.

The Windows Azure Training Kit is a great way to learn about the new features in Windows Azure and get your hands dirty trying out some of the bits.  To make the best use of your experience, you should sign up for a Windows Azure account – if you have an MSDN subscription, you can activate your FREE benefits from the Windows Azure website.  If not, you can sign up for a 90-day free trial.

  3. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just too excellent. I actually like what you have acquired here, really like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it smart. I can’t wait to read much more from you. This is actually a tremendous site.

  4. It is in point of fact a great and useful piece of information. I am glad that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Bagussssssssssssssssss…………..Desain bagus.. Animasi jg lucu… Artikel cukup informatif…Tapi halaman awal sedikit membingungkan…^^

  6. I cannot believe anybody thinks it’s ok for a 54 year old man to hook up with even an 18 year old man! I am glad this man got caught out because he shouldn’t be chasing people so much younger then him, he sounds like a predator and I for one as a fellow grindr user am absolutely fed up with being harassed by these older men that think they can get into a much younger mans pants. Go find someone your own age!

  7. Good video with some interesting results… Why didnt you give the lesson on what you did different? Yea you said the 1st 3 hits were in a decending blow and the other 3 were in an upward blow, but what did you do different? Does that make sense?

  8. Like KateD I’m interested in how the B2B sector can use social location marketing strategies. Being in Sydney Australia I’m also interested to see whether other social location platforms get market share down under. Many of my friends use Foursquare and with Google Places there isn’t much awareness around Gowalla, Loopt & Yelp.Thanks for the interesting articles Ann.
