The Azure Building Blocks project is a command line tool and set of Azure Resource Manager templates designed to simplify deployment of Azure resources. Users author a set of simplified parameters to specify settings for Azure resources, and the command line tool merges these parameters with best practice defaults to produce a set of final parameter files that can be deployed with the Azure Resource Manager templates.

Good news, the detail blade for the Annotations feature in Application Insights is now available!
If you have been using Parse hosting as the backend that supports your mobile apps, this may be the perfect time to try out Azure App Service.

My preferred method of deploying to an Azure Web Site is using git, partially because this is a feature I've been involved with from the beginning (it's known as Kudu). However, in some cases, I just need to deploy a bunch of files from my local machine with minimal fuss, and using git is overkill. For these scenarios WebDeploy (aka msdeploy) really shines.
