Windows Azure is Microsoft’s answer to Cloud Computing.  It offers robust development and deployment facilities for the .Net developer.  Plus, it will enable the existing ASP.NET, WCF, C# skills to be migrated to this new arena.

Here I would list the step by step tutorials for learning Windows Azure. The chapters are organized in the order of Basics to Advanced.  You will be needing Visual Studio 2010 to continue with the articles.  The articles will be redirecting to as the associated downloads can be found there and I do not wanted to duplicate the contents.
