Toolbox: Tools for AWS and Azure

It’s all about “the cloud” these days, right? Storage, services, distributed processing… it’s dead simple to spin up whatever resources your project may need, on demand.

My May 2016 Visual Studio Magazine column 14 Tools For Microsoft Azure Development highlights some handy tools, templates, and extensions for integrating Microsoft Azure resources into your software development projects and in some cases directly into Visual Studio itself.

My June 2016 column 16 Essential Windows Tools for Amazon Web Services covers similar ground, introducing you to some Windows developer tools that support AWS-based app development and resource management. The AWS tools article is also included in Visual Studio Magazine’s comprehensive Building Onto the Cloud with AWS whitepaper, free with registration.
