Just as a side note, on the show I mentioned I'd be adding piping support to azure-scripty. I've now added that. If you head on over the wiki you'll see an overview under "Declarative Piping"
Ha ha. No I am not still there, I mean i never left Microsoft or my team. I just worked over there for 3 months.
No comments on the data centers....
I am happy to say that people I spoke to were very open to the idea of Azure. Many had no idea though that we even care about OSS/PHP the stacks they care about.
I think there's enough serious players like Yahoo and Linked-In using node.js, not to mention tons of other companies, to say it's passed toy status
Preview 5 is much more stable than our previous releases. As far as when our RTM will be, our plan is to ship V1 along with the rest of the web stack (MVC 4 etc) next April.
I've posted the ContactManager using RavenDb sample that I showed in the talk here.
To launch the sample.
- Download the zip / right click / properties / unblock all files.
- Launch RavenDb by running start.cmd in the Raven folder.
- Once the Raven Explorer launches go to the Tasks menu and select import. Select the ContactManager.bak file located in the root folder.
- Run the sample solution.
@CodingSalmon thanks for the feedback! Glad you like the API and the quick starts.
