    I need your help!

    I need everybody's help. I need people to look at the announcement on the Cloud storage task, I need people to actually do this. It will only take a few minutes to do two of the activities, and I need to get a lot of people to do these. I need *you* to do them. it will take more time to watch the video than to do the activities. See the announcement in this forum, or go to http://www.codeguru.com/azure_activities/ and see the information there.

    Please take a look and try the first couple of activities.

    Brad!

    Activity 1 is just to watch the video. No other things needed in there.

    I haven't had any issues with neither audio nor video. Perhaps your media player needs updating.

    Re: I need your help!

    OK, this is a separate post ( that is why I posted 2 times ).

    I did the activities and they were actually quite fun to do

    Activity 1 shows you a great video concerning the cloud, and specifically storing data in the cloud. For those not knowing what the cloud is, do not be afraid, as it is very very easy.

    All you need to do beforehand is to get the Free Trial of Windows Azure. You can get it here :

    http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/

    You will need either VS 2012 For Web, or VS 2013 For Web. You can find them here :

    http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/downloads/?sdk=net

    This will also give you the very nice SDK - and all of us should know the value of the SDK.

    This whole process didn't take me long to do - that includes obtaining the free trial and downloading VS For web

    When starting this activity, I had to register with developer.com - that is just a little form that I had to fill in, and then I could start with the activities.

    After that was done, the real fun started!

    I followed the steps as outlined in the Video ( Activity 1 ) to create my data sources. Windows Azure is very simple to use, and setting up three data storage facilities took me about 10 minutes - that includes the creation of the fields and storing the info. I followed the instructions on the video ( activity 1 ) verbatim, and I submitted it through this page :

    http://www.codeguru.com/azure_activities/#activity_2

    Then I did the third Activity

    Because I already played around with creating data storage facilities I was half-way through the third activity.

    I then created the Activity 3 Service project, and published it.

    The only thing that takes long about this is the fact that it takes some time to get published and created on Windows Azure. It took about 10 minutes for me ( my internet is slow in South Africa )

    I then submitted Activity 3.

    Please people there is nothing to be afraid of, it is easy! If I can do it, anyone can!

    Now I can use all these badges :

    Re: I need your help!

    But the sign in page says Please enter valid credit card information for identity verification purposes only. Your credit card will not be charged for this offer unless you explicitly remove the spending limit. What is the meaning of this?

    Re: I need your help!

    Where, on the Microsoft site?

    It does ask for credit card info, it makes a temporary charge with a code. This code is needed ( unfortunately ) in order to proceed. They do refund you. I promise. The trial period ends in 30 ( I think ) days, and if you choose not to extend the offer, Microsoft leaves you alone.

    Does that help?

    It is not wise putting some of your card details into a public forum.

    Where are you now? Are you downloading Azure? You do not need to, as the services will be available to you. MS just made sure that you are in fact a living person. The 3 digit number they have put on your account must be used to activate your Azure account. Afterwards you will have access to everything needed ( in Azure ) for your data etc.

    No, they do not. I have Windows 7 on my work PC, and as I mentioned in an earlier post, all that is needed is VS 2012 or 2013. If you use 2012 you should have at least Windows 7. VS 2013 You should have at least Windows 8 or 8.1

    I have to callup My Credit Card department & dispute the Issue, I think My Card company will not accept my request,coz I punched in the CVV number of my card to get that proceed. So stupid of me.
