Beta of Windows Azure Toolkit for Facebook

Jessica Thornsby

A beta of Windows Azure Toolkit for Facebook is now available to download.

This toolkit aims to aid the community in getting Facebook apps up and running in Windows Azure. One of the advantages of deploying Facebook apps on Windows Azure, is that if an app becomes successful it should not require much modification – the developer just needs to increase the number of instances they are using.

This toolkit includes Facebook Developers Toolkit, and the Azure Toolkit, which provides a simplified library for accessing Message Queues, Table Storage and Sql Server.

Please note that both a Azure Account and a Facebook Developers account are required for this toolkit. The source code is available from the project website.
