Windows Azure provides a wealth of capabilities to node.js developers. You can take advantage of Azure’s compute clusters to host your node.js applications and scale them infinitely. You can also use the Azure npm module to take advantage of services like Storage from within node.js applications hosted in any environment. You can even debug your applications live in the cloud. This tutorial will provide you hands-on experience working with node.js and Windows Azure.

  • Creating a Windows Azure Node.js application
  • Running in the compute emulator
  • Deploying Azure sites, applications and vms
    • From Windows
    • From Mac
    • From Cloud9
  • Enabling Remote Desktop
  • Scaling out
  • Using WebSockets
  • Using Azure Storage Services (Table, Blob, Queues)
  • Using Azure role management apis
  • Using Service Bus
  • Debugging and Diagnostics

    I think the meetup was really informative, but some of the demos didn't go as planned which was not so good.
