Book Review: Building Real World Cloud Apps with Windows Azure

Building for the cloud is a different ball game than building solutions the conventional way. The developer has to think about cost and availability, among other things, while devising solutions - factors that were not a great concern earlier.

Building Real World Cloud Apps with Windows Azure (link to PDF) is a free ebook that contains strategies, guidelines, best practices, patterns for building cloud apps. The chapters could have been numbered as it is the general practice with books.

We hear about movies made from story books but this book came out after Scott Guthrie‚Äôs video presentation on the same topic. The book has three authors - Tom Dykstra, Rick Anderson, and Mike Wasson and it has been reviewed by scores of others experts.

The code snippets referenced in the book are part of a complete Visual Studio project - Fix It Sample Application. I liked the illustrations and tables - they complement and improve the explanations. A few samples:
Types of NoSQL databases
What the availability percentages mean

This is a great reference to follow and keep going through.
