Windows Azure Mobile Services:  The Perfect Partner!

Building a robust, modern mobile application often requires a developer to not only focus on the front end user experience, but also backend services such as data storage, user authentication, and often push notification services.  This is often the tedious, less enjoyable aspect of building an application for many mobile application developers.  Windows Azure Mobile Services provides a scalable and easy-to-use “backend-as-a-service” for mobile applications.  In this session we’ll use Windows Azure Mobile Services to power a new Windows 8 application.  We’ll see how in just a few minutes we can have a ready-to-go application and service that provides scalable data storage, user authentication, and push notification support.
