Roger Jennings’ Cloud Computing with the Windows Azure Platform
Writing and publishing a book about a technology early in its infancy is cruel. Your subjected to many product changes and your book might be outdated the day it reaches the book stores. I bought Roger Jennings “Cloud Computing with the Windows Azure Platform” book knowing that it was published in October 2009 and that many changes occurred to the Azure platform in 2009.
Right off the bat and from a technology point of view, some chapters are now outdated but don’t reject this book because of that. In the first few chapters, Jennings does a great job at explaining Cloud Computing and the Azure platform from a business point of view, something that few Azure articles and blogs fail to do right now. You may want to wait for the second edition and read Jennings’ outstanding Azure focused blog in the meantime.
