I'm really interested in building on Azure's Blockchain but I don't seem to see any details about dev environments or pricing plans. I did read a figure of $400-500 p/m on another post but that's not really feasible for me. Is there a 'test' or 'free' tier/way of accessing this tech?

@scgough I had the same problem and used the following steps to reduce my cost running my development blockchain.
1) Select a lower tier VMSS for the two scale sets that Blockchain Workbench creates.
2) Power off VMSS when not using.
3) Select a lower tier app service plan.
4) Run the BWB in a dev/test Azure resource group.
Depending on use the cost can be between $50-$200/mo.
