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
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!
