I have a project that requires me to write a library management system in F# and using Windows Azure for the development. I am quite new to Cloud concept and i don't know what to do as a next step. Is there any way to implement it using webForms? If you can help me with the steps i have to take, i can study them and learn. Thanks

What research have you done so far? What resources are you using that aren't helping? -1 Until you've done something of your own. –  Steve Evers Apr 11 '11 at 21:58

It is certainly possible to write an F# app for Azure, I think there are even project templates in VS2010 for F# Azure roles. However, I think you will need a "paid for" version of VS2010, I don't think the Express Editions will cover F# templates.

The next step would be to install VS2010 and explore some of the project options, you can get up and running on your own PC without an Azure account, you just nee the dev fabric. You may want to take a look at a few MSDN sites or Luke Hoban's blog for more F# / Azure info.

When you need to deploy to Azure you'll need to set up an account and create roles etc. This is a pretty large topic in itelf and is not F# specific - again there is a lot of info on MSDN, e.g. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsazure/dd439432.aspx

Seems to me that, if you write your F# DLL so that it is CLS compliant, it should run just like the C# DLL or VB DLL, or whatever language you happen to use.

I think the question refered to web forms, i.e. ASP.Net, not win forms. –  Steve Haigh Apr 11 '11 at 21:55
