  • Using Azure as a Silverlight Streaming Replacement

    In this post Tim Heuer explains how to use Azure as a replacement of Silverlight Streaming.

    Many have inquired if Silverlight Live Streaming had a replacement since the announcement of it being deprecated.  The SLS team blog pointed to Azure as a possible solution.  Since it doesn’t seem like anyone except James has really tried this, I decided to dust off my Azure account information and give it a try.

  • Quick Azure Storage Application

    Jeff Brand needed to demo some Azure storage stuff and decided to share it with you.

    Quick and dirty, incomplete testing, and probably some design flaws, but it gets the point across. ;-)

    To use the sample, you need to modify the DemoAuthorizationService.cs file to include your real Azure account and token information, or change it to use the local devstore account and key (though you  will need to modify the DemoAuthToken.cs file to return the right Uri – like I said, some stuff that needed to be cleaned up).

    In this next part of the series Brad Abrams talks about Azure.

    Azure represents a general trend in the industry towards a cloud computing model. As much as I love the development phase of projects, the operations side is often the most cost intensify part.  With economies of scale, cloud computing has the potential to greatly reduce those costs.  I think example I took advantage of Windows Azure to host the web-tier of the application and Sql Azure to host the data.  Those are actually independent decisions.  You could decide to host one and not the other. 

    Here are the previous parts of Brad's series:

    • Part 1: Navigation Basics
    • Part 2: Rich Data Query
    • Part 3: Authentication
    • Part 4: SEO, Export to Excel and Out of Browser
    • Part 5: Astoria, Add Service Reference and WinForms
    • Part 6: Data Transfer Objects (DTOs)
    • Part 7: ADO.NET Data Services Based Data Store
    • Part 8: WCF Based Data Source
    • Part 9: POCO and Authentication Provider
    • Part 10: LinqToSql
    • Part 11: The Client-Only World
    • Part 12: DataSet
    • Part 13: The New Class Library Project
    • Part 14: Visual Basic (VB) and WPF Support
    • Part 15: ASP.NET MVC
    • Part 16: Exposing a WCF Service
    • Part 17: Evolving an Application
    • Part 18: Custom Linq Provider

    Tags: Azure , RESTful Web Services , WCF

    Rob Bagby is ready with part 3 of his series where he is building an Azure shopping cart application and this time he is going to first create a RESTful service using WCF and then will host it in Windows Azure. If you are not familiar with the previous articles from this series you may find them here: Azure Application Part 1: Setup and running “Hello World” and Azure Application Part 2: Access Azure Table Storage.

    This service will source it’s data from Azure Table Storage.  I will then illustrate how to consume this service from a Silverlight component hosted in Windows Azure.

    Rob Bagby has released the 1st screencast of a multi-part series where he will be building an Azure application from the ground up.

    The application will be a shopping cart application with a Silverlight Front End.  The goal of this application is to illustrate various features of Windows Azure and in coming weeks, portions of .NET Services.  The first few posts will concentrate on Windows Azure, our Cloud Operating System.  I will illustrate things like the developer fabric, hosting various pieces of an application in the cloud (web pages, services, Silverlight components), as well as working with Azure Table Storage.  From there, we will keep going, adding and updating pieces of the application.

    Yavor from the Silverlight Web Services Team announces that there has been posted a Code Gallery site with 3 Silverlight-specific samples that you can run in the cloud and also on your local machine.

    With all the buzz around Windows Azure, you may have wondered how to host your Silverlight application in the cloud. Since Silverlight controls are essentially static content, hosting them is as easy as uploading some files to the cloud.

    When it comes to building WCF services to provide data to your Silverlight control, the story gets a little more complicated.
