The Windows Azure SDK 2.2 has been released to support the final RTM release of Visual Studio 2013. In this episode, I am joined by Paul Yuknewicz, Dennis Angeline and Boris Scholl for a look at how the SDK adds new levels of productivity to Visual Studio for cloud development. These features include:
- Integrated Windows Azure Sign-In support [03:40]. Integrated sign-in support enables developers to develop/test/manage Azure resources within Visual Studio without having to download or use management certificates.
- Filtering and subscription management in the Server Explorer. Once you login within Visual Studio, you can filter which Azure subscriptions/regions are visible within the Server Explorer by right-clicking the "Filter Services" context menu. You can also use the "Manage Subscriptions" context menu to manage your Azure subscriptions.
- Remote debugging of Cloud Services within Visual Studio [17:00]. With live, remote debugging support from within Visual Studio, you are now able to have more visibility than ever before into how your code is operating live in Azure.
