Attached video demonstrates the following:

  • Creating a new Windows Form application using Visual Studio 2010
  • Adding a service reference to Windows Azure service (developed and deployed in previous posts)
  • Creating instance to proxy and accessing the operations
NOTE:  Developing and testing the service used in this demonstration is covered in previous post.
