Cloud Application Development

Microsoft Azure provides a connected cloud platform that provides the freedom to deploy and use technology in the way that makes the most sense for you. Get the benefits of a virtual platform—lower cost, greater reach, and rapid time-to-market from initial idea to final realization. The quickest path to developing for Azure is through Visual Studio 2013. With Visual Studio and Azure, you can connect to your Azure subscription from the Server Explorer, start or edit website, or create a mobile service to serve as your backend for your mobile devices.
