Asynchronously processing messages by using Azure Queue Storage Part 4 – Download Azure Storage Explorer and add messages to the queue.

Head over to Azure Storage Explorer here and download and install.

Open and connect to your storage account and queue and add a message. Make sure you don’t encode in base64.

Run your dotnet application and watch it collect your message in your very own Azure Storage Queue!

You’ve just created a storage account, message queue and written a C# program that uses the resources. Great work!

Now go ahead and delete the storage account and the resource group if you don’t want them anymore.

az storage account delete -n lab11stgacc -g lab11-rg
az group delete -g lab11-rg

Asynchronously processing messages by using Azure Queue Storage Part 1 – Create a storage account

Microsoft provides many different sources for working with Azure. Let’s run through Microsoft Learning Github and Module 11 of AZ-204: Developing solutions for Microsoft Azure here.

Let’s create a storage account using CLI.

First create the resource group.

az group create -n lab11-rg -l westeurope

Now let’s create a storage in that resource group.

az storage account create -n lab11stgacc -g lab11-rg -l westeurope --sku Standard_LRS

Now finally let’s get and record our connection string storage key using CLI.

az storage account show-connection-string --name lab11stgacc

Great! Make a note of this connection string as we’ll need it later.

In the next post we’ll install git and pull the lab into our Visual Studio Code!
