I have a dekstop client application that talks to public web services (asmx) that talk to private web services (asmx) behind a firewall that talk to the SQLServer database with the servers all residing in a standard hosted environment. In this session, I'll discuss the whys and wherefores of migrating from this old-school environment to Microsoft Azure. I'll also show you how to create a WCF Service running over TCP in a worker role, and how to use Intellitrace to debug your application in the cloud.
