Links of the week

After two weeks of silence it is time for another links of the week. This week I have five sites covering Windows Azure which should be interesting for you.

The first one is a good example of how you could deal with Big Data in Windows Azure – Weather Forecast on Windows Azure. I first saw this demo on the Windows Azure Train-The-Trainer in Amsterdam during TechEd Europe earlier this year and I’m very happy that this demo still exists.

Earlier this week Microsoft announced that they will reduce the costs for using the Windows Azure Storage. With that they are following Google and Amazon, which also reduced the pricing for their cloud offerings.

During the last weeks I also introduced the Windows Azure Mobile Services in some videos (recorded in German for the Windows Azure YouTube channel). Now Chris Klug has written a nice introduction to the Mobile Services, which I can recommend to read.

Two other remarkable articles come from Josh Twist and Scott Guthrie. On the one hand Josh has written a tutorial how you could access your Mobile Services data from Excel. At the other hand Scott explains some updates to the Mobile Services iOS SDK – which now comes with Push Notifications.

Links of the week

Hello and welcome everybody for todays links of the week. This week three new tutorials about SQL Server in a Windows Azure Virtual Machine were made available:

  • Connect to SQL Server in the same cloud service
  • Connect to SQL Server in a different cloud service
  • Connect ASP.NET application to SQL Server in Windows Azure via Virtual Network

Also I find some links about Windows Phone 8:

Links of the week

After some silence (this will change during the next weeks – I’m working on a new blog post series) on my blog it is again time for the links of the week. What happened last week?

On Wednesday we had a great Windows AzureConf 2012 with some of the best speakers in the Windows Azure Community. Some of them are Windows Azure Insiders, some of them are MVPs, but, except of the keynote from Scott Guthrie, nobody of the speakers was a Microsoft employee. What does that mean? Real life experience. You will find all the sessions on Channel 9.

One nice thing I find from time to time on the web is a “31 Days of …” series made by Jeff Blankenburg. This time he is working together with Clark Sell and delivers an awesome series of posts about Windows 8. 19 days are already gone, but you will find every single post on 31 Days of Windows 8.

Away from these two remarkable sites I have three additional sites you should have a look at:

Another week has gone with two exciting announcement for the Windows Azure folks: The Windows Azure Training Kit got updated and Scott Guthrie announced an update for the Windows Azure Mobile Services. This week I only got some links for Windows Azure (except one for Windows 8 development), but they are pretty good.
