In this installment of the Web Camps TV Week of WebMatrix 2, Vishal and Justin show how you can build ASP.NET WebPages applications. They use the built-in Starter Template to create the site and enable Twitter-based authentication via the built-in support for OAuth. Justin writes some code to allow for drag-and-drop image uploading using jQuery and SignalR, then he and Vishal publish the site to Windows Azure Web Sites using the 1-click publishing features. The site they build runs on mobile browsers too, and during the demonstration they show real-time updates in a phone emulator as images are uploaded. This exciting demonstration shows how the modern ASP.NET web development features can be used with Windows Azure to build a dynamic image-sharing application.
