Just a test to see what can and can't be done in my first developer experience with the Azure Platform. I am going to attempt to create a system where users can login using Windows Azure Active Directory Access Control and create a profile. You can then request a list of users based on Location and Preferences. I guess it could be positioned as a dating application but not my intention, I am a happily married man  Would like it to also incorporate messaging, both text and picture.


I have been a developer for many years and have never delved into any cloud development so i am picking something that should test mine and the abilities of the Azure platform. I think my abilities will be more at test! Nice to have a challenge!

Using the code

No code as of yet, i am curently reading into the technical resources of MSDN with regards to Azure and what it can do. At the moment focusing on Windows Azure Active Directory Access Control, which hopefully i can use to offer flexibility with how the user logs into the system.

Points of Interest

I am learning loads, i have created my first Azure webservice application and am trying to secure it with the access controls.
