The guys of the Azure Podcast were kind enough to have me on. I've talked about building applications for global usage with Azure Platform-as-a-Service. I also cover this topic in depth in my Pluralsight course. Basically, I split out the problem in two areas:

  • Getting the frontend (HTML, CSS, Images, etc..) close to the user
  • Getting the data close to the user

During the podcast I talk about Azure Web Apps, Azure Traffic Manager, Azure SQL, Azure Storage and Azure Document DB. What I want to highlight is that all of these things can really help to make your life as a developer easier. Azure takes care of the "boring" stuff so that you can build things that matter!
