Open Source Role Call for Windows Azure

Windows Azure is a very open platform and now has a number of Microsoft supported SDKs.

Windows Azure

In order to test out the Windows Azure platform to it’s full extent I am looking for a few  developers that program in the open source realm to develop a few simple web applications in Java, Python, or Ruby to be hosted on Windows Azure. These applications don’t need to be anything too extravagant, however, I would prefer if the application was to use the Windows Azure Storage API.

You can download the respective storage APIs here: Java, Python, Ruby, and PHP.

If you are an Open Source Developer and would like to try out the Windows Azure Platform contact me for a Windows Azure Token. Once you have deployed your application into the cloud, I will create a blog account  for you on the Canadian Azure Experience Cloud Blog [that I installed using Azure BlogEngine.Net] for you to post your experience with Windows Azure.

All this sounds great, but what’s in it for you? I am not a Microsoft Employee, so I won’t be able to offer up much, but this is a great starting point for the Elance Windows Azure Contest. Plus I will offer up a post about you and your application on my blog for all the world to see [Hey, You found this didn’t you?].

Here are a few resources to get you going with Windows Azure:
