Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games v1.0


I like it when my work life meets my gaming life and this is one of those moment. The toolkit for social games helps developers take advantage of the scalability of the Windows Azure Platform and includes a sample called Tankster – a HTML5 client connected to Windows Azure. The architecture uses a Web Role, a queue, a Worker Role and heavily relies on blob storage beyond that.

Nathan Totten’s latest blog post, “Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games & Tankster Version 1.0”, announces the release of the latest version of the Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games and the Tankster game. This release adds new features, improves the performance and stability of the server APIs, and contains many user interface improvements to the sample game.

With my gaming head on: “Look, green tanks with bug guns. Cool”
