Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud service, providing compute, storage, and other services to enable you to scale apps on demand. Azure is not just a .NET solution. It’s a Windows solution, supporting other languages, including Java, PHP, and most recently Node.js. Node.js?! What’s that? Why should I care? Join Peter for an overview of both Node.js and Windows Azure, as well as how you can run Node.js apps in Azure. We’ll look at the tools and deployment process and cover some of the details of how Node runs on Windows in general.
