On January 26th I presented at our MSDN-Briefing on Cloud Computing and Windows Azure. During the session I introduced our (and my) point-of-view on Cloud Computing. Within the demos I migrated my good old MicroBlog sample I created for a presentation at the technical university of Vienna last year to run on Windows Azure.

Here are the little challenges I had for the migration outlined (please note, that this is just a simple sample – for bigger apps you definitely will run in some more issues – Rainer Stropek and I will talk about these in our Session at BigDays 2010 in March):
The remaining parts of the application worked pretty well, of course I extended it during the briefing to use Blob- and Table-Storage. But more on that hopefully in later posts.
