TNWiki Article Spotlight – How to Create a Developer Virtual Machine on Microsoft Azure


Hello and welcome everybody to our TNWiki Article Spotlight on Tuesday.

On how many machines do you develop most of the time? I would guess that your answer is 'more than one' … and with every update of a software you normally have to do this update on all machines. Or what happens when you want to try something new, such as the newest Visual Studio version? Do you setup a separate machine or install it on a virtual machine via Hyper-V? If you have one of these problems or questions Shreeharsh Ambli has a solution for you – create a virtual machine on Microsoft Azure. No need to setup a separate machine or a local virtual machine … and sometimes no need to install new software (f.e. Visual Studio 14 is already available as an image in the gallery on Azure).

But that's only my favorite way how to deal with these problems! How do you deal with them?
