Using Visual Studio and Azure Mobile Services to Build Mobile Apps

  • Jul 1, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


In the quickly growing space of mobile devices, apps play a crucial role. No app is truly complete without a suitable, easy to implement backend. In this session, we take a deep dive into how Visual Studio can help you build a mobile app that uses two hot backends - Azure Mobile Services and Azure Storage. Using a simple example, we’ll be delving into how VS tooling makes it easier to enhance your apps with server side scripts, authentication, push notifications, and Azure storage. We’ll also look into how you can quickly and effectively diagnose issues with your app. Along the way we’ll answer questions like which backend is most suitable to use and what are some of the challenges facing the app developer in this space.


Merwan Hade is a Program Manager on the Windows Azure Tools team in Visual Studio. He has helped develop Azure SDK 1.8 and more recently Azure SDK 2.0Merwan is passionate about app building endeavors, especially in the mobile and web space.

    I have heard there are EV charge station on MS Campus but can't find a map of where they are. Anyone know if there are any close to the building or have a link to a map handy for the location?

    Your meetings seem very interesting, but for devs from California just a little to get to, any chance of presentation online via powerpoint, video. I'd paypal that. Even Google hangouts.
