Deploy your cloud applications to Windows Azure from TFS Automated Build

The Windows Azure SDK (November 2011) has just been released and one of the updates caught my eye:

Team Build: The Windows Azure Tools for Visual Studio 2010 now offer MSBuild command-line support to package your application and pass in properties. Additionally, they can be installed on a lighter-weight build machine without the requirement of Visual Studio being installed.

This will make it even easier if you want to deploy your cloud projects directly to Windows Azure from a TFS automated build. Download the SDK here and get more details on the Windows Azure blog here
