Putting the Cloud in Your Pocket - Using the New Windows Azure Mobile Services

Putting the Cloud in Your Pocket - Using the New Windows Azure Mobile Services .NET Backend to Build Cloud Enabled Mobile Apps

Azure Mobile Services provides mobile developers a valuable tool they can use to quickly create rich and robust apps in the current Mobile First, Cloud First environment.  Since its initial release, the functionality provided by Mobile Services has evolved tremendously, and now includes the option to use either a .NET/WebAPI based back-end service or the original node.js implementation.  This session will introduce the new .NET-based Windows Azure Mobile Services and will show how it can be used to quickly stand up cloud-based API support and provide the various cloud service integration needs of most mobile apps, including data storage and manipulation, authentication and authorization, connection to notification services, offline data synchronization, and custom server-based job scheduling.
