Windows Azure Platform Training Kit - September 2011 Release

Yesterday we released the Window Azure Platform Training Kit – September 2011 Release. You can get the content here:

The September 2011 release of the training kit includes the following updates:

  • [New Hands-On Lab] Service Bus Messaging

  • [Updated] Labs and Demos to leverage the new Window Azure SDK & Tools 1.5

  • [Updated] Labs and Demos to leverage the new Windows Azure AppFabric SDK 1.5

  • [Updated] Introduction to Windows Azure Marketplace for Data

  • Applied several minor fixes in content

The updates for the Windows Azure SDK & Tools 1.5 and the Windows Azure AppFabric SDK 1.5 are really quite significant – it takes a lot of work to pull this off. To give you an idea, take a look at everything we did:

  • **25 of the 30 hands-on labs **were updated to use the Windows Azure SDK 1.5 and/or Windows Azure AppFabric SDK 1.5.

  • 15 of the 25 demos were updated to use the Windows Azure SDK 1.5 and/or Windows Azure AppFabric SDK 1.5.

  • Approximately 145 projects updated.

  • 86 dependency checker files updated for 25 hands-on labs and 18 demos.

  • 22 hands-on labs and 7 demos updated for changes to the Windows Azure Portal experience.

We really try to make these training resources valuable to you, so please be sure to provide feedback if you find a bug, mistake, or feel as if we should including something else in the kit.
