So since SharePoint Lists have limited columns available for use, I'm now trying to write the output from my SharePoint hosted Silverlight app into a Windows Azure hosted SQL database.

Are there any good tutorials on how to read and write to SQL in Azure from Silverlight/SharePoint?

I'm using Silverlight 5, VB.Net, and SharePoint 2010 Foundation and SharePoint Online.

The best tutorial I've found for this is Silverlight Sample Application with SQL Azure.

It walks you through connecting to Azure and performing a simple SQL Query.
