Built using ASP.NET MVC and jQuery, founder Aaron Coleman had to migrate off of traditional hosting and onto Azure the day he discovered he had won the White House’s contest. He needed to scale quickly in anticipation of the press Food Buster was going to receive. Aaron explains how he was able to adapt his ASP.NET application to take advantage of Azure’s native features and redeploy everything in a day.
Aaron of FoodBusterGame.com talks with Aaron Stannard, Start-up Developer Evangelist.
