Politics, Weather, Photography, and the Dog
Saturday 2 March 2013

I've just finished—I mean, finished—the Weather Now worker role. The worker role runs in the background and performs tasks like, for example, downloading the weather from outside sources, parsing it, and storing it.

I have three tasks left to enable me to publish the new version of Weather Now to its new home in Windows Azure:

  • Create a script to initialize the lists that appear on the site's home page;
  • Upgrade the existing ASP.NET website to an ASP.NET web application; and
  • Create an Azure Cloud Service Web role to house the application.

I believe I will be done today sometime. But first, Parker is demanding a trip outside.
