Welcome to patterns & practices Windows Azure Guidance site

Many customers are looking for guidance on how to make the move to Windows Azure, and how to make the most of it. patterns & practices has a series of projects that target application design and development on Windows Azure.
The key themes for these projects are:

1. Moving to the Cloud
2. Developing for the Cloud
3. Building Hybrid Apps in the Cloud
4. Analyzing Big Data in the Cloud 


These themes will allow us to categorize the scenarios that we will be delivering. Most of the scenarios are challenges that customers face today. And as we progress the program forward we will have more scenarios.
