Cloud Storage Studio: Essential tool for developing with Windows Azure

October 28, 2009 at 4:40 pm (Azure)

If you are doing any serious development on Windows Azure at some point you will want to look at the data that is stored in the cloud (either dev fabric or azure fabric). I‘ve tried several tools and so far by far Cloud Storage Studio by Cerebrata.

You can manage multiple accounts which is very handy. All three storage types (Blobs, Table, and Queues) can be managed very intuitively through the interface.

Go ahead and give it a try you’ll be happy you did.

How to fix Silverlight 3 with Azure May SDK

July 10, 2009 at 2:00 am (Azure, Silverlight)

After upgrading my project from Silverlight 2 to Silverlight 3, my Azure project would not load :(. Looks like the upgrade for Azure assumes you have VS 2010.

Fortunately the fix is simple in 2 easy steps (click images to see them better):

1)  Renumber the tools version from 4.0 to 3.5

2) Remove the text “ for VS2010”

Hope this helps
