Need an ad-hoc query tool for your Azure data tables? LINQPad to the rescue…

SSIS Junkie - LINQPad and Azure

“Since I started dealing with Azure tables I’ve become frustrated that there is no ad-hoc query tool, nothing equivalent to SQL Server Management Studio. Then I heard about LINQPad and figured there must be a way to use it to query Azure tables using LINQ and indeed there is as I’ll explain here (this post assumes that you have a working knowledge of LINQPad and Azure storage).



Why roll your own Azure data store query tool/utility/thing when you can just use the uber-cool LINQPad? (aka LINQPad rocks… ;)
