How to get started with Windows Azure

Adoption of a new platform always starts out extremely slow, this is no exception in the world of Cloud Computing.  I’m no different, I didn’t immediately start picking up Windows Azure as soon as I heard about it.  Yet being a young developer i wasn’t sure if I could make the leap to the Cloud platform.  Now that I’ve taken the dive, I couldn’t believe that I hesitated in the first place.

If you are like me and are still debating on taking a look at the cloud, what are you waiting for?  If you’re worried about not being able to use Bing, Google or your own favourite search engine. Here are some resources in order to get you started:
