Configure PowerShell to automatically load commandlets
- Create a folder inside your user's Documents folder and name it WindowsPowerShell
- Inside that folder create a file called Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1
- Edit the file in a text editor and add the following contents

- First, create an Azure hosted service called HelloWorld by typing
- Inside the HelloWorld folder, add a new Web Role by typing
- Test out the application in the local emulator by typing
- You are now ready to publish to the cloud service. Go ahead and register for a Windows Azure account and make sure you have your credentials handy.
- Get your account's publish settings and save them to a file
- Now import the settings
- You are now ready to publish to the cloud. Make sure you specify a
unique name for your application to ensure there aren't any conflicts during
