imageWe just discovered this great resource for “How Do I” videos on Microsoft latest technology developments.  The first 9 of 40 planned videos about Azure are now published here.

These are the first comprehensive set of HDI’s on the entire Azure Services Platform which will allow you to see the Azure Services Platform in action without the CTP.  Its an easy way to take action and absorb thoughtful technical information to get you up to speed quickly at no cost.

Don’t be left behind because the fact is developers have downloaded a whopping 3.7 million HDIs from MSDN as of Nov FY09!  Its a YouTube style of learning that everyone loves.  So what are you waiting for, visit the overall HDI landing page regularly and sign up for the RSS feeds.  You may also sign up for future notices about upcoming content (including HDIs) by clicking here.

You may also get the Azure SDK from here.
