In the current Azure SDK, the Storage Client sample used in Chapter 4 is no longer included, at least not with the other samples.

However, it looks like the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.CloudStorageAccount object has taken over its functionality. The thumbnails sample code uses that object.

Documentation for the StorageClient namespace is here:

In describing the sample code, the book should mention that it is included in a zip file in the Csmilierogram FilesWindows Azure SDKv1.0 directory. There is a separate zip file for C# and VB. It should be mentioned, because if you go looking for the Samples directory with File/Open Project, you will not find the samples in the zip file.

Re: Chapter 4 - Storage Client Sample replaced with StorageClient namespace

As you've probably figured, we are in the middle of an update to reflect post PDC09 content.

All the content you are referring to is pre pdc09.

The first set of updates to the MEAP, will be available this week.

Thanks for your feedback and patience, we really are working us hard as possible to get the updates out as soon as possible.
