In this show, I am joined by Boris Scholl and Merwan Hade, Program Managers on the Visual Studio Azure Tools team. They provide a high level overview of the just announced new tools in Visual Studio for working with Azure Storage and performing diagnostics. These tools are available as part of the Windows Azure SDK 2.0.
Merwan shows how the Table Explorer and Query Builder make it easier for developers to work with Azure storage. He shows adding and querying Azure table entities from Visual Studio. Boris shows how you can take advantage of Diagnostic Configuration and the Diagnostics Summary page to troubleshoot a deployed cloud service application.
