Windows Azure Training Kit April Update

And yes, here we are again with a new update of the Windows Azure Training kit. And with the transfer of Scott Guthrie to the Azure team, I’m expecting to see things move even faster.

What is the Training kit?

The Windows Azure Platform Training Kit includes a comprehensive set of technical content including hands-on labs, presentations, and demos that are designed to help you learn how to use the Windows Azure platform, including: Windows Azure, SQL Azure and the Windows Azure AppFabric.
The April 2011 update of the Windows Azure Platform Training Kit has been updated for Windows Azure SDK 1.4, Visual Studio 2010 SP1, includes three new HOLs, and updated HOLs and demos for the new Windows Azure AppFabric portal.
