Kevin Williamson has a great post on the overall flow of things from the point of publishing of your package up on the Windows Azure Developer Portal to Run().
These are good things to know as many times you need to inject steps, tasks, context at various stages of your service instance’s lifetime.

So, as one of the OneTAP leads for Windows Azure focusing on the BizSpark folks, I run into many questions regarding HOWTO and in areas of Auto-Scaling, provisioning, authentication.
The folks at Full Scale 180 (http://www.fullscale180.com) have created a nice sample application that demonstrates the following:
- Automated Scaling
- Federated Identity
- Sample source code
- Design document
- Setup guide
- Sample walkthrough

Reflector has been invaluable over the years. I’m torn about the idea it’s become a paid for tool, and by all means folks should be compensated for great work. Not sure where Lutz is in the cash flow.
But, the ICSharpCode guys have released ILSpy at www.ILSpy.com (http://wiki.sharpdevelop.net/ilspy.ashx)
Right now the limitation is it’s NetFx 4.0+. So, keep that unfortunately self-updating version of Reflector around. I still may pay, but it’s good to know there’s competition.
Amazing. Sony sends out this and it’s as if they’re taking credit for all the Free things we as consumers do (or can do) to protect ourselves already.
