We are finally out with one update of the Windows Azure Training Kit! You can download it from here, as usual.

The kit contains tons of news, you can read all about it from James’ update: my contribution this time is the introductory lab to the new ACS, which will show up in the next update to the identity training kit as well.

This time we wanted to keep things super-simple, hence we focused on the absolute minimum: handling multiple IPs, basic claims transformation and customization of the sign-in experience.

This is by far the simplest identity lab we’ve ever produced, and gives just a taste of the basic new capabilities in the labs release of ACS; subsequent labs will get deeper and tackle more advanced scenarios. In the meanwhile… have fun!
