imageIn mid-November, Microsoft will launch Windows Azure around the world.  In preparation for the big event, Tony Bailey, Senior Marketing Manager, Breadth Solution Partners recently took on the challenge of building his first Windows Azure application.  After getting his “hello world” single web page published, Bailey created the Publishing_webpage_to_Azure_basic document to help guide customers through the steps necessary in creating and publishing a “Hello World” page leveraging Windows Azure.  Bailey states that “After getting my Azure Invitation code, my stopwatch record for completing the doc steps is 37 minutes.”  Now let's see how good you really are: let's see how fast you can get your single "hello world" web page up on Azure - here's the how-to doc – if you like the doc pass it on.
