This past Tuesday and Wednesday Microsoft Argentina hosted the Going Deep with Windows Azure training event. We took care of second day sessions:
- Azure Service Bus
- Hadoop on Azure
- Node.js and Java on Windows Azure
- Azure Websites
- Azure Virtual Machines
I was in charge of the third session. I started talking about the different technologies supported by Azure and then I focused on just 2 of them: Node.js and Java. In both cases I did a brief explanation and then I run a demo.
For Node.js I deployed to azure the Pictionary sample developed by my colleague David Frassoni (alias Harry). I did it from a machine running Ubuntu and using the new Git Publishing feature offered by Azure.
In the case of Java, I create a Java Web application using Tomcat 7, Eclipse for JEE Developers and the Eclipse Plug-in for Windows Azure. I run the application i the local emulator and then showed how to deploy it to Azure.
Here is the slide deck I used in the session.
