In September 2012 I did a session on Microsoft Windows Azure's Table Storage at the Professional .NET 2012 Community Conference in Vienna. In this blog post I would like to publish the video and sample code I presented during the session.
Windows Azure Portal - includes access to trial accounts, pricing calculator, how-to descriptions, links to the documentation, SDK downloads, etc.
Excellent white paper about the internals of Azure's Table Service. Not absolutely necessary to know programming with Table Services but very interesting to read.
Windows Azure SDK on github (sometimes it is not enough to download the latest bits from the Azure portal; to get the latest features that are still under development you might need to pull the Azure SDK sources from github)
In my session I demonstrated the use of shared access signatures (SAS) with table storage. This security feature has been available for blobs from the first day on. Microsoft introduced it for table services in the latest service release for the Azure storage platform. When I did my session in September 2012 the stable version of the .NET SDK for table services (1.7.0) did not support SAS for table services. Therefore you needed to download the latest preview (1.7.1) from github and compile it yourself. Today this is not necessary any more. However, I will add a checklist for getting and building the Azure SDK just in case you will have to do it for any reason:
September is BASTA! time. It has become a beloved tradition for me to travel in Autumn to Mainz to speak at the BASTA! conference. This year, my workshop, session and keynote topics were .NET, microservices and web dev technology. In this blog post I share my session material and recordings.
Yesterday, I did a session at the .NET Stammtisch Linz. I spoke about latest Docker developments relevant for .NET developers. I focused on new features in Visual Studio and .NET base images available in the Docker Hub for .NET Core and .NET Framework 4.7. In this post I share a recording of my session. Take a look if you want to hear me speaking in my native Upper Austrian dialect ;-)
