I spoke at VS Live! Redmond a couple of weeks ago and Jason Zander, a Corporate Vice President in the Azure group did just an amazing demo of the new Event Hub feature and I wanted to duplicate it from the ground up. Here’s the basic setup. The demo consists of a web client that sends a message (and the browser being used) to an event hub. The event hub passes it on to a queue (this is mostly because it makes the demo much more fun) and then a client reads out of the queue. The best part is that it happens almost instantaneously.
