You’ll need to install the latest Azure developer tools for
Visual Studio. You can get these at Azure.com – 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.
