It has been a few weeks since my last post in my link-listing series regarding Windows Azure, but there have been several things that have caught my eye in that period.  Happy to share with other Azure enthusiasts…

There have been some announcements regarding toolkits for Windows Azure:

  • Update for Windows Azure Toolkit for iOS: The toolkit for iOS now supports several new features such as integration with the Access Control Service.  I see this as a great enabler for building federated authentication capabilities to AD, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Live ID, other Open ID providers directly into native iPhone and iPad applications.
  • Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games:  A new toolkit to enable game development on Windows Azure.  Complete source code from an example game, Tankster, is available.
  • Architecture of Tankster: Nathan Totten describes the architecture of the social game Tankster, built on Windows Azure, in a couple nice posts.

Here are a few recent posts from Cory Fowler, Windows Azure MVP,  that I think are pretty useful:

Here are some more links to great articles and materials, in no particular order:

Happy reading…
