My colleague and friend Roberto Brunetti wrote Windows Azure Step by Step Microsoft Press. It is a good introductive book about programming on Windows Azure. He is a well known speaker, author and trainer in Italy and he finally used its great skills to explain Windows Azure to a broader international audience. I’m waiting my copy, in the meantime you can order your one on Amazon (also available as Kindle edition).

Moreover, for those Italian readers of this blog and for everyone one some Italian book on their bookshelf, I’m happy to announce that the Italian translation of the Microsoft PowerPivot for Excel 2010: Give Your Data Meaning will be available in a couple of weeks!
