HoL: Web Roles and Worker Roles

We will continue our Summer of Azure by looking into how to setup a cloud project with an ASP.NET MVC web role and two worker roles.  Web Roles and Worker Roles are cool concepts, but you need a good use case around them to fully grasp it.  We'll use the tutorial on the Azure web site to create and deploy a multi-tier ASP.NET MVC web application that runs in an Azure cloud service and uses Azure Storage tables, queues, and blobs.

This is a Hands-On Lab so please come prepared to do some coding. You must bring a laptop. Don’t forget that power supply. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have wireless Internet access so you can download on-site.  Pizza and refreshments will be served as usual.  Please RSVP by 12pm on Tuesday so we can get a head count for the pizza.

These Hands-On Labs will use a mix of web portal management and Visual Studio. VS 2012 or 2013 are recommended and you won’t need to install anything else to complete the labs. You will need a trial account for Azure. Browse to and look for Free Trial in the top right corner. You can also download the Windows Azure SDK for VS 2013 from×409

NOTE that we are back to the normal confines of the Omnyx scrum room this month.  We look forward to a great evening of coding with you.
