I delivered a session on Windows Azure Storage and SQL Azure Database at the UK Azure user group on the 6th of October.

A big thanks to everyone who attended – and for putting up with my last minute improvisation when we realised that 2/3rd of the audience were actually brand new to Windows Azure (and presumably therefore brand new to the user group)


  • Main site and where you register to get tokens. Remember you need separate tokens for Windows Azure and SQL Azure.
  • Or… a more streamlined registration portal for UK developers (only gets you Windows Azure, not SQL Azure)
  • The SQL Azure Storage tool I was using (which is extremely useful!) Cloud Storage Studio (Currently in beta)
  • A great online tool for working with SQL Azure – Omega
  • The podcast where I will publish the interview with Steve Marx on Azure in next week or so

I also have a longer version of this presentation with more info and learning on storage which I delivered at Software Architect 2009.

Thanks for the slides, this was a useful presentation it told me everything I needed to know to get started.

I'd love to see more people using Silverlight for slide decks -- maybe I should dev one myself... If so I'll integrate it with Azure.
