Getting Started

You’ll need to install the latest Azure developer tools for Visual Studio.  You can get these at – just click the Get Tools & SDK link.  You’ll find walkthroughs for creating and deploying applications at this location as well.  Once you have the tools, create a new Azure application, or download my sample application and adjust it to suit your needs.  In my case, I wrote a very simple MVC-based web application that displays some very basic profile information from my Code Project profile.  You can easily change the code to show your own Code Project profile by substituting your profile ID for mine.

Build and test your application locally using the local Azure tools.  The sample application provided literally only has this bit of code – it’s pretty close to a Hello World app.  To be sure, you can build much more involved applications and leverage additional services such as Azure Storage or SqlAzure.

FYI - about 4 weeks after completing these steps I did receive a check for $250 from Microsoft as part of the promotion described here.
