Setting up Windows Azure .net development environment

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on February 21, 2013

I recently started Azure development and thought maybe this post would be useful for future developers. It’s basically about setting up Windows Azure development environment for .NET

  1. Download and Install Windows Azure SDK.
  2. Download and Install NuGet package Manager. Nuget package manager is a easy way to download and reference the needed libraries to your project.
  3. Setup a Windows Azure account from Windows Azure Website. Microsoft provides 90 day free trial to use the Azure cloud resources. During the registration process, it asks for credit card details to validate the authenticity. They do not charge the card.

Assuming you have Visual Studio already installed, that’ pretty much it.
