My new Azure Book

So I've just agreed to write a book on Azure for Manning.  The timeline is very aggressive so I'm going to pretty focused on Azure for the next few months.

I'm incredibly pleased and honored to have had my proposal accepted and today is my first day of writing.  Actually, when I say first day of writing, it's more of my first day setting up my environment for writing the book.

Today has so far consisted of:

  • Downloading lots of Software
  • Clearing up my desk
  • Uninstallaing and Installing Software

Anyways I will therefore pretty much exclusively focused on Azure rather than Silverlight for a few months, that's not to say that there is not some synergy in some areas.

I think the next few months will be a lot of fun but a lot of hard work.

The book should be available in all good bookstores (and some of the dodgy ones too) from January.

Anyways, enough waffling and back to some serious work.

Congrats Chris and good luck. Keeping track of changes in .net 4/vs2010 has taken over my lefe at the moment!

From one Manning author to another, I wish you the best of luck. If you need a reviewer, I hope you will ping me. I'm looking to learn more about Azure.
