An Introduction to Windows Azure Web Sites and Web Jobs

Windows Azure Web Sites is one of the most exciting and innovative compute options in the Windows Azure Platform today.  In this session, learn about some of the capabilities of Windows Azure Web Sites as well as some best practices.  If you think this execution model is all about web sites, think again.  With the recent release of Web Jobs there’s even more application development scenarios available for running background processes and we’ll talk about this too.
