Windows Azure Mobile Services
In this episode, Josh Twist and Nick Harris introduce us to Windows Azure Mobile Services. This makes it incredibly easy to connect a scalable cloud backend to your client and mobile applications. It enables you to easily store structured data in the cloud that can span both devices and users and integrate it with user authentication as well as send out updates to clients via push notifications. Josh, with assistance from Nick, shows how to add these capabilities to any Windows 8 app in minutes.
