Check out what's new in the Pluralsight On-Demand! library.

Welcome to our May releases! As the school year draws to a close, Pluralsight On-Demand! is actually ramping up production schedules, so don't look for a summer break from us :) This month, Matt Milner introduces the Azure cloud platform with modules on storage and roles and Mike Woodring brings us back to earth with an in-depth discussion of Win32 and COM interop in the CLR. Yacine Khammal has recorded several more modules in his Dynamic Data Tutorial, David Starr has wrapped up his VSTS 2008 course, and I have a few how-to videos thrown in on ASP.NET 4.0, so save time to watch all of the new content rolling in.
