The Azure Storage library provides synchronous and asynchronous versions of nearly all the methods that access the Azure Storage service.
The asynchronous methods follow the common language runtime (CLR) Asynchronous Programming Model (APM). In this model, asynchronous methods for an action are defined as a pair named
EndAction. The asynchronous operation is initiated through a call to
BeginAction and is cleaned up by a call to
BeginAction action has a parameter that is a callback delegate, and
EndAction must be invoked in this delegate.
This apparent complexity can be greatly simplified through the use of a lambda expression to represent the callback delegate. Furthermore, local variables ...
