FREE 30-day Azure developer accounts! Hurry!

[updated: this offer is US-only for now, I’ll post more updates as they become available]

If you’ve worked with Azure you know that the SDK provides a simulation environment that lets you do a lot of local Azure development without even needing an Azure account. You can even do hybrid (something I like to do) where you’re running code locally but using Azure storage, queues, SQL Azure.

However, wouldn’t it be nice if you had a credit-card free way that you could get a developer account to really push stuff up to Azure, for FREE? Now you can! I’m not sure how long this will last, or if there’s a limit on how many will be issued, but right now, you can get (FOR FREE):

The Windows Azure platform 30 day pass includes the following resources:

  • Windows Azure
    • 4 small compute instances
    • 3GB of storage
    • 250,000 storage transactions
  • SQL Azure
    • Two 1GB Web Edition database
  • AppFabric
    • 100,000 Access Control transactions
    • 2 Service Bus connections
  • Data Transfers (per region)
    • 3 GB in
    • 3 GB out

Important: At the end of the 30 days all of your data will be erased. Please ensure you move your application and data to another Windows Azure Platform offer.
