Announced in March 2010, the Windows Azure Command-line Tool for PHP enables developers to easily package and deploy new or existing PHP applications to Windows Azure using a simple command-line tool without an Integrated Development Environment (IDE).  

To get familiar with the tools watch this video where Sumit Chawla, Technical PM/Architect, Microsoft Interoperability Strategy Team presents the new features and demo how to deploy a PHP application (using WordPress with SQL Server Build) to Windows Azure.

This demo is actually an abstract of the “Welcome to the Cloud: Windows Azure Command-line tools for PHP” webcast I presented last Friday as part of PHP Architect webcast series. The entire recording will be available soon at:
