    And in case you're wondering why I keep looking off to the left, Yavor (@theyavor) and Matthew (@mattchenderson) were sitting off to the side. I've told them to sit under the camera next time. ;)

    According to the video I should be able to sync the offline data in my app with MongoDB running in Azure backend (see approx 14:00 minutes into the video): "You can use it with Table Storage, or MongoDB or a combination thereof". Is there any documentation or tutorial for how to make this happen? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    @Johan: check out this tutorial:

    Build a service that uses a non-relational data store

    You can use a non-relational data store such as MongoDB or Azure Table Storage with your mobile service. This tutorial shows how to use a MongoLab hosted MongoDB database to store your mobile app data.

    Great WebCast!

    Please do more in the .NET Backend area, and please don't forget at least to mention VB once in a while. There are so many legacy Business apps out there, many of them done with VB.NET, and Mobile Services is just such a perfect tool to connect the old with the new world!

    And it is so VB friendly after all! :-)

    @Klaus Loeffelmann: Excellent point! We usually demo the .NET backend in just one language for simplicity, but you're absolutely right that the .NET backend works with any .NET language (including VB, C# and F#).

    I'd love to hear your experience in modernizing your apps!  You can reply here or at mobileservices@microsoft.com.
