    2) Do you want to know the certification rules and usage restrictions involved with using Push Notifications for Windows Phone?
    3) Do you want to see how to make a web service and consume it in a Windows Phone app?
    4) Have you been meaning to try Azure but thought it would take MORE than 90 seconds to learn how to publish on it?

    Howard Dierking demonstrates how to setup Azure hosting for the MSDN Magazine Pivot collection.

    As I’ve mentioned in a couple earlier posts, Pivot is driven using Deep Zoom image pyramids. This means that for a collection of trade card images, multiple additional image combinations are generated for different zoom levels. The net result here is a LOT of generated images. For example, in the case of the MSDN Magazine Pivot collection, there are roughly 2400 article trade cards. Generating the deep zoom collection from this set of input images yields roughly 100,000 images with a total collection size of just under 500 MB.

    Gavin Wignall built a Festive game to promote Windows Azure using Silverlight 4.

    Last year I created a Festive game for the Microsoft UK Partner team, with the creative help from our Metia team at Reading TVP, we managed to turn the game around in just one week! You can still play that game here: http://www.microsoft.com/uk/partner/game/

    After the success of last year we were given the challenge again to create a simple fun Festive game with the focus to be on Windows Azure. Again, I was given the creative support from our Metia TVP team so that I could focus my time on building the game mechanics. Thankfully, this year our turnaround time had been lengthened to two weeks.

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterIn this blog post, Emil Stoychev explains how to deploy a web app to Windows Azure.

    Source: Emil Stoychev's Blog

    Cloud computing became a buzz word last 2 years and while I haven’t ever played with any “clouds” (excluding hosting media on Amazon S3 for SilverlightShow) I needed to deploy a web app to Windows Azure. The application itself consist of ASP.NET Web Application, couple of WCF services (including WCF Data Service) and a Silverlight application. The application is also using an SMTP server to send some reports on daily basis.

    My case is pretty common and I was lucky enough to find all the information I needed on the web so I thought I will summarize all blogs I read to get my application up and running on the cloud.

  • Sharing the code for a simple Silverlight 4 REST-based cloud-oriented file management app for Azure and S3

    In this blog post, David Anson is sharing information and code for his BlobStore project.

    BlobStore was a fun project to work on and it gave me some nice exposure to Silverlight's networking stack (which I don't normally get a chance to use). There are some rough edges I didn't get around to smoothing over, but on the whole I think BlobStore turned out pretty well: it's small and quick to download, easy to use, it simplifies something I do every day, and it was a great learning experience!

    Aside: You can even use BlobStore to publish Silverlight applications (just upload the XAP and HTML file), so it's got that recursive thing going for it, too..

  • Application Partitioning with MEF, Silverlight and Windows Azure – Part II

    Tags: MEF , Windows Azure , Alexander Strauss
    Alexander Strauss has the second part of his post on application partitioning with Silverlight MEF and Windows Azure. If you have missed part take a look at it here.

    In this second and last post I will talk about how you can retrieve the information about the deployed parts of the application and retrieve the actual XAP files from the Azure Blob Storage.

    Still we only have one Silverlight project where we added just one interface as the contract for the import and lazy initialization and an attribute class to flag our parts in the Silverlight projects to come as user controls to be exported as parts of the application meeting the specified contract.
