Sample.cs 

// Retrieve storage account from connection string
CloudStorageAccount storageAccount = CloudStorageAccount.Parse(
    CloudConfigurationManager.GetSetting("StorageConnectionString"));
  
// Create the table client
CloudTableClient tableClient = storageAccount.CreateCloudTableClient();
  
// Delete the table it if exists
tableClient.DeleteTableIfExist("people");
