Pricing - What the f**K?
Really, Azure offers nothing for small developers. I don't know who came up with your pricing model, but its complicated and expensive. Do you also change when I go to the toilet? Which option is that so I can deselect it?
Seriously, offer packages that a simple, easy to understand and provide a nice entry level for small developers, enthusiasts and students. Forget all of that free this and free that for 3, 12 months, x functions, y call, z storage. None reads its much less understands it and just goes to the quoted bottom line.
I plugged in the basic options and came up with more than a $1,000 per month..Meh, rather pay the house mortgage thanks.
