When BidNow was originally released, it was a sample built using Windows Azure and Windows Azure Storage, along with authentication provided via Live Id. Since the original release, a number of additional services and capabilities have been released. Consequently, BidNow now utilizes the following pieces of the platform:
- Windows Azure
- Windows Azure storage (e.g. blobs and queues)
- SQL Azure
- Windows Azure AppFabric Caching
- Windows Azure AppFabric Access Control
- Windows Phone 7
These updates not only provide important and useful capabilities, but also highlight the ways in which to build applications in the Windows Azure Platform.
Here are a few guides you can leverage to get started using BidNow.
