You’ve probably seen a few posts on my blog involving Windows Azure; more recently, I’ve been talking quite a bit about the integration between SharePoint and Windows Azure. However, of critical importance for the developer is to ensure you have access to good how-to docs and sample code. And of course if you want to teach others about Windows Azure, then it’s good to have some collateral on it. Well, today the latest release of the Windows Azure Platform Training Kit shipped.

In this kit, you’ll find a set of comprehensive tutorials, code and decks that you can use to ramp up on Windows Azure. For you SharePoint developers who are looking to go deep on Windows Azure, this is a great kit to take a look at.

You can find some additional information on Wade Wegner’s blog and the Windows Azure blog, which also announced the availability of the new tools for Visual Studio 2010.

Enjoy!
