Microsoft Azure isn't just an amazing platform for ASP.NET, it's also an excellent platform for hosting the world's most popular blogging engine: WordPress. With WordPress powering 19% of the web and Microsoft Azure adding more services at amazing price points, it's a no-brainer to combine the two. Leave your traditional shared webhost behind and look to the cloud.
In this session, we'll walk through creating a new, git-driven WordPress installation running as a Microsoft Azure Website. We'll also tie into other cloud services, such as Azure Block Blob Storage for storing media, SendGrid for sending emails, and ClearDB for our database. You'll be ready to launch to the cloud in no time!
