On Saturday June 23rd I presented an updated version of my Windows Azure 2.0 Platform Overview at the Hartford Code Camp. Since there were quite a few major Windows Azure announcements on June 7th this was a major update of my existing presentation. In fact I was updating it until the night before the presentation.
A Link to the Windows Azure 2.0 Platform Overview presentation deck is included above. This deck is one that I have been evolving and updating over the last 4 years as Windows Azure has been evolving and reflects my current understanding of the features now in the product. That includes old standbys such as Cloud Services (Web and Worker Roles), Storage (Blobs, Tables, Drives and Queues), and SQL Database (the new name for SQL Azure) as well as the new Web Sites, Virtual Machine and Virtual Networking Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) features and Linux support.
The presentation also has some good references to get you started learning about Windows Azure. In particular I want to draw your attention to the new Windows Azure Training Kit which was just released last week.
