On this episode of Breakpoint, Jonathan and Paul thought they'd take their own spin on talking Windows Azure. Visual Studio 2013 is the best front-end to the Windows Azure development platform, and as such, they take you on a tour of Windows Azure from Visual Studio's perspective. See how you can create new and manage existing services right from Visual Studio, build web sites and deploy directly to the Cloud, as well as test your solutions in the Cloud with Visual Studio Online. Plus: see how you can easily build solutions for SharePoint Online and Office 365 in Visual Studio 2013.

The Discussion

    When I go to Tools-->Extensions and Updates, I do not see any Azure SDK for .NET installed or available for download in my copy of Visual Studio 2013 Professional yet, the Windows Azure dropdown in Server Explorer looks exactly like yours.  Could you elaborate more about this SDK; could the SDK be baked in?

    Hi, Sean.  It's very possible that with the latest VS update you received the SDK by default.  It may have also been installed prior to this - it may have been installed as a pre-requisite to another installation you could have done before (maybe by the Web Platform Installer?).  If you installed a previous version of the Azure SDK already, it may have auto-updated as well. 

    In any case, you can find all of the Azure SDKs here

    Hope that helps!
