Did you see the new http://windowsazure.com? I think the site has a much cleaner look and makes it easier to find what you’re looking for.
http://dev.windowsazure.com takes you directly to the Windows Azure developer site, which is the place developers go for information about Windows Azure.
My responsibility is to play curator for that site. I’m going to try to find the best content available and organize it in a way that developers can find the information they need as quickly and easily as possible. I’d like your help doing that.
Three questions every product website should answer
When I’m investigating a new development technology, these are the questions I immediately ask (and the time I’m willing to spend answering each):
- What is this? (30 seconds)
- Is it useful to me? (5 minutes)
- How can I get started? (15 minutes)
I’d like http://dev.windowsazure.com to deliver great answers to these questions for a developer audience and then provide organized, deeper content for people who decide to invest their time learning the platform.
I need your help!
I’ve set up a Writeboard page (basically a one-page wiki) with the password “azure” where you can contribute to this effort by helping me collect the right content and organize it. There’s also a section on the page for you to tell me about the best developer websites you’ve seen and why you like them.
Here’s a screenshot of the page at the time of this writing:
Browse to http://123.writeboard.com/4b893890aa0ca3a65 and enter the password “azure”.
