What the heck is Azure other than a nice shade of blue? How do you pronounce it? Why would you want to use it? How would you use it? What would you use it for? What does the programming look like? This session is for enquiring minds who want to know the answers to these questions, and more. I will also show how to create and run a WCF service in a web role, talk about deployment, and show how to convert an existing Silverlight application to run on Azure.
