      Hi Jonathan,
      For the most part, the azure portal is an HTML5 website on top of the Azure platform. It exposes some, but not all, of the functionality of the underlying sub-systems. Some of those subsystems are considered building blocks: like storage, compute, networking; while others are higher-level Platform-as-a-Service offerings, such as Mobile and Media.
      To explore what each of the features offers, they usually have a start page in their respective sections. These will point you to additional resources for learning and development.
      Also, you can start at:
      http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/
      Then drill down into a particular Feature, Media Services, for example:
      http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/solutions/media/

      Regards,
      Nick Drouin
      Sr. Program Manager
      Azure Media Services

        Hi Taylor,
        I'm a Media guy, not storage, but I thought this might help unblock you. I wrote up a quick tool to set CORS rules on my account in C#.
        You can find the full code it as part of this forum thread:
        http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsazure/en-US/628bb3eb-f96c-479b-9040-e9ecaf45bac9/crossorigin-resource-sharing-cors-in-azure-storage
        Between that, Fiddler, and the REST docs for CORS:
        http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/dn535601.aspx
        You should be able to see it in action and build what you need in Python.

        I'll leave it to the storage folks to provide feedback on Portal / Python SDK roadmap.
