Microsoft has done an excellent job of building a cloud solution that is downright fun to work with, regardless of the language or toolset you want to use. They are regularly releasing updated API's and new cloud service offerings, have remained competitive in their pricing, and have even (wait for it) been called "visionary". The feature that I enjoy the most is the ease of configuration of their various offerings, most can be configured in a couple clicks and up and running in less than a minute. This really helps ease you into a nice deployment cycle right off the bat, especially if you take advantage of automatic Github or TFS deployments. Enough talk! Show us the code!
