The combination of mobile and cloud computing is like peanut butter and chocolate. Nobody does it better than Microsoft when Windows Phones and Slates are connected to Windows Azure over wireless. The Microsoft cloud platform offers mobile developers an easy way to add storage, compute power, database access, and web services that are accessible by any mobile platform. Join Rob as he helps you make sense of wireless-efficient web services and data transports such as XML and JSON. Learn how to implement data sharding to scale out via Windows Azure tables while de-coupling access to Microsoft SQL Azure databases through the use of worker roles and queues. Combine all this with caching to provide a responsive mobile experience at Internet scale.
