Most of the screen shots and code examples shown in this e-book are based on the Fix It app originally developed by Scott Guthrie to demonstrate recommended cloud app development patterns and practices.
Developers who are curious about developing for the cloud, considering a move to the cloud, or are new to cloud development will find here a concise overview of the most important concepts and practices they need to know. The concepts are illustrated with concrete examples, and each chapter links to other resources for more in-depth information. The examples and the links to additional resources are for Microsoft frameworks and services, but the principles illustrated apply to other web development frameworks and cloud environments as well.
Developers who are already developing for the cloud may find ideas here that will help make them more successful. Each chapter in the series can be read independently, so you can pick and choose topics that you’re interested in.
Anyone who watched Scott Guthrie’s Building Real World Cloud Apps with Windows Azure presentation and wants more details and updated information will find that here. More at ASP.NET
