Building end-to-end apps for SharePoint with Windows Azure and Windows 8
With the deep SharePoint 2013 API set, coupled with the new app models for SharePoint and Office, the opportunity to build innovative end-to-end solutions that span cloud services and devices is just plain breathtaking. Devices can seamlessly reach into SharePoint via REST to retrieve data and SharePoint can fire events to light up your backend services – like sending notifications via the Windows Push Notification Service to SharePoint workflows. And all your cloud-based services can be powered by the reliability, scalability and elasticity of Windows Azure, from Web Sites to SQL Database. In this session an end-to-end demo is the backdrop for the discussion around the architecture and code needed to build just such a solution.
