“Building mobile back ends with Windows Azure Mobile Services”
Windows Azure Mobile Services is a backend as a service (BaaS) offering designed for the mobile ecosystem. It promises to enable mobile developers to worry less about their infrastructure and focus on building out their apps. Out of the box it comes with scalable RESTful endpoints, a dynamic "schema less" data store, PUSH notifications, authentication and authorization management. Currently there are SDK’s for Windows Store, Windows Phone, iOS and Android clients. In this session I’ll take you through the features of Windows Azure Mobile Services and I’ll build out some sample applications to show you how to get up and running with this this new technology.
Aidan is based in Cork and works remotely as a solution architect for MYOB Australia where he provides technical leadership and guidance to a large development team. Aidan has over 16 years’ experience in the software industry. Aidan is a passionate member of the technical community, and a regular presenter at events across Australia and Ireland.
