Started a SQL Azure database

After developing a WCF service for the cloud i started developing a simple database for the cloud. After creating my database i was able to connect with SQL Server 2008 R2 to my database in the cloud. Once i got my database up and running with multiple database objects i connected my WCF service with the database. So far so good. I like the cloud solution of Microsoft! You don’t have to work very differently when you take a look at the development we are used to, so this is great. I am still hoping for a project soon where i can develop a real business application for the cloud.


Deployed my first service in the cloud

Whoohoo i deployed my first service in the cloud. I got excited when i left the Teched 2010 in Berlin, so i had to create an account and deploy my first WCFservice in the cloud. I think the excitement will stay for a while and hopefuly i will be able to develop some real stuff for the cloud.

The only thing i didn’t like about Azure is the time it takes to deploy a webrole. I know Microsoft is working on this issue, so i am happy with it!

The next thing to do is connecting my service to SQL Azure. I am looking forward to it.
