Microsoft Evangelist Yung Chou capture a great webcast about the Windows Azure Quick Start Kit. The webcast is around 1 hour long.
Discription Source Microsoft TechNet:
This is the recording of the webcast in which I reviewed the deployment methodology (http://aka.ms/AzureIaasMethod) and walked through the PowerShell script for automating a deployment. You can get the script from http://aka.ms/QSKand set up Windows Azure PowerShell by following the instructions at http://aka.ms/AzureCmdlets to test the script yourself. This will get you prepared for a more elaborated Windows Azure PowerShell script which I am planning to release in a few weeks.
