Deploy to Azure from Git Repository

Microsoft has just added the ability to deploy directly to an Azure Website from a Git repository.  All you have to do is place the following into your README.md file:

[![Deploy to Azure](http://azuredeploy.net/deploybutton.png)](https://azuredeploy.net/)

You can also use standard HTML tags to provide your own button like this:

<a href="https://azuredeploy.net/" target="_blank">
    <img src="http://azuredeploy.net/deploybutton.png"/>
</a>

 

The following video describes the process in more detail.
