Continuous Deployment (GitHub) with Azure Web Sites

.Net .Net 4.0 ASP.Net ASP.Net MVC Version Control Visual Studio Windows Azure

Windows Azure websites supports Continuous Deployment. Continuous Deployment can be thought as an extension of continuous integration, where when ever users commit a changeset, build will be triggered. And in case of Continuous Deployment, the changes will be published to your live application directly from source control, when ever user commits a changeset. This is a fantastic automation feature that can be leveraged from a range of source control tools such as Visual Studio Online and others (GitHub, BitBucket, DropBox, CodePlex, or Mercurial) . Azure websites supports staged publishing (it is in Preview state) as well, so if you don’t want to publish your changes direcly to live, you can deploy it to staging and verify it. Once verification is completed, you can push the staging to live.
