learning azure with my own website project

It’s been a long time since I wrote a website.  I really enjoy some aspects of it (what I consider the scripting part of it) – type in something, save the file and open or refresh a browser.  I have discovered if I have to compile something that’s typically where I lose patience/interest.  So as I’m studying Azure a practical website project became of interest to me:  I want a site to send all my facebook friends to on their birthday.

First I have to see if the website name is available (something.azurewebsites.net) and we will do that with PowerShell:


figure 1: see if a site name is available


figure 2: grab it before someone reads this and takes it!
