Building vb123.com.au using Azure


If you are a little old school and build a website using old ftp technologies, Microsoft's very successful Azure has a  Content Deployment that uses Dropbox and other modern cloud synchronization tools. The interesting thing about this is that you can build a website completely on your desktop and not worry much about the internet at all. And if you were happy hosting content in a site called MyLittleSite.Azurewebsites.com, you could be off and racing in short period of time.  Anyway to get a feel for what I now do to publish to Azure, look at the pictures on this page.

What's the difference with just using an Access Web App instead, since it also connects with Azure?

This technique posts 1000 files into a website, nothing to do with databases.

I guess I was misled by your statement, "The interesting thing about this is that you can build a website completely on your desktop".
