Steve Plank presented the newcomer's introduction to Windows Azure this week and here is the recording of the online conference.

This session is for a developer who is either new to Windows Azure or has not yet had any exposure to it. But, as a developer you have heard some buzz and noise around it that you feel you should check out. We will be providing an introductory technical description of Windows Azure’s architecture, what moving parts are included in the platform, how to actually get started writing code and deploying live Internet applications, an overview of some of the core APIs and finally to understand how it is sold, how much it might cost to deploy your application and what the benefits would be.
