I've been a slacker in posting about this cool new resource. Steve Fox over at the Microsoft Developer & Platform Evangelism (DPE) group recently blogged about an update to a cool training resource available for SharePoint developers.
In July Microsoft refreshed the SharePoint & Windows Azure Developer Learning Kit which includes labs demonstrating how to integrate the two products. This is a pretty cool concept especially for those who need to break out of the sandbox in environments such as Office 365. We at Critical Path Training, specifically myself & Scot Hillier, were proud to contribute a handful of labs for this learning kit. You can tell one of them is mine... I was able to integrate one of my hobbies which is keeping an African Cichlid tank.
If you're really into this topic you should also check out Steve's book on Developing SharePoint Applications Using Windows Azure. It's filled with tons of resources & pointers to other assets to get you started.
