In this lab, you will gain experience using C# and Visual Studio to connect to and use Table storage.
You will RDP into a Windows VM that is set up with Visual Studio, and update a pre-built solution with the appropriate Table storage C# code. We will then use this code to connect to Table storage, upload Table Entities individually or in batches, and retrieve Table Entities by partition and row keys or by using Table Queries. Finally, you will run a console application to see everything working.
Upon completion of the lab, you will have gained the experience required to work with Table storage using C#.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- RDP into the VM and open the Visual Studio solution.

- Update Visual Studio solution and run the console app.
In this step, we’ll update our Visual Studio solution with the appropriate C# code to connect to and interact with the Table service.
When we’re finished, we’ll run our completed console app to save and retrieve Table Entities.
