In this course you will learn about Windows Azure cloud services and storage. Specifically, you will learn how to provision Azure services and how to deploy and upgrade your applications. Additionally, you will gain an understanding of the storage services provided in Windows Azure: tables, blobs, and queues; and how they are exposed via HTTP. This course does not use a language specific SDK. Instead, the goal of this course is to help you understand how these services work and how to use HTTP to interact with them providing the foundation for working with these technologies from your preferred language.
