The Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate Preview image provides the capability to quickly provision a development environment for Web/SQL development and for SharePoint 2013 development on an Azure Virtual machine. The image contains the following components:
· Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate Preview
· SQL Server 2012 Express
· SharePoint 2013 Trial
· Scripts to provision SharePoint 2013 and SQL Express
The scripts on the image allow you to configure the virtual machine for either SQL, Web development or for SharePoint development.
The virtual machine can be provisioned through the portal or through PowerShell and PowerShell Remoting. This tutorial will guide you through both options.
