A WPF client for the Windows Azure Blob Storage with Visual Basic

If you are interested in developing applications for the clouds and you have signed up for an account on the Windows Azure Services Platform, you might have noticed that uploading files to the Blob storage is not immediate. Of course you could take advantage from the source code shipped with the Azure SDK for programmatically managing blobs.

To make things easier, I decided to create my own client for managing files on my Blob storage and I did it with Visual Basic 2008 and Windows Presentation Foundation. The source code for this application is available on CodePlex and you can find it by clicking here.

A screen-shot:

I just needed to add a reference to the StorageClient project shipped with the Azure SDK, which exposes APIs for programmatically interacting with the Blob storage, then I wrote some Visual Basic code.

This is just the first release of the application, so a number of improvements could be implemented in future versions. Let me know what do you think about the application and feel free to download and edit the source code according to your needs.
