A couple of new Windows Azure announcement were made today.  As my colleague Bruce Kyle covered earlier, the Windows Azure team announced the availability of two new datacenters in the US:  East US & West US.  For what I assume are security purposes, the exact location of these data centers was not released.  (I’m guessing they are east & west of the Mississippi River respectively.) Speaking of security, the Windows Azure team also announced something that I’m sure will answer a lot of frequently asked questions I get when speaking about Azure with customers: A shiny
new Windows Azure Trust Center on!  One of the most frequent category of questions I get about Windows Azure relates to the general topic of security:  Is my data safe technically?  Physically (data center)?

The Windows 8 Consumer Preview has been available for download for about a month now and if you haven't started building Metro style apps, now is a good time. In this episode, I take a look at how you can use Visual Studio 11 to start building Metro style apps for Windows 8. I focus on using XAML and will show you how to use each of the three project templates Visual Studio provides. I then demonstrate building an app that uses real data instead of sample data.
