Getting Started with Azure DocumentDB Programming

In my previous post in the series, I provided a short explanation on how to register your very first Azure DocumentDB account and play around in the Azure Portal.

If you haven’t read it yet, please read it first here: http://www.madeirasql.com/my-first-azure-documentdb-account

In this post, I’ll help you get started with the really interesting DocumentDB stuff, namely – programming with DocumentDB in Microsoft Visual Studio 2013

Programming with DocumentDB

DocumentDB has seamless integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2013.

If you don’t have VS2013 yet, you can also download the free Visual Studio 2013 Express edition.

You will also need Azure SDK for .NET version 2.3 or higher, available through the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.

At this point you should have everything you need to watch and follow along with my video tutorial on getting started with your first Azure DocumentDB application (specifically in C#).

Have fun!

In the next post in the series, I’ll focus on programming to create and query the documents themselves.

More Resources & Tutorials

The Azure DocumentDB team provided an extensive collection of tutorials that span across every possible topic in DocumentDB. You can get there by clicking on the “Documentation” button when you’re in your DocumentDB account blade:
