“How To”: Using Visual Studio to build Applications That Integrate with HDInsight/Hadoop


Click to Read

To make developers in Visual Studio productive with “big data” in their custom applications, we’ve added a deeper tooling experience for HDInsight in Visual Studio in the recent updates to the Azure SDK. This extension to Visual Studio helps developers to visualize their Hadoop clusters, tables and associated storage in familiar and powerful tools. Developers can now create and submit ad hoc Hive queries for HDInsight directly against a cluster from within Visual Studio, or build a Hive application that is managed like any other Visual Studio project.

Download the Azure SDK now for VS 2013|VS 2012|VS 2015 Preview.
