Most consumers expect cloud services without ever thinking about “The Cloud”. As consumers, we use services like Gmail, Dropbox, twitter andeven Xbox Live and we expect our information to be available from any locationand on all of our devices. When creating quality, mobile apps, we should provide a similar experience because our customers expect it. The Cloud enables startups and mobile developers to provide the same user experience as large enterprises and Fortune 500 companies. It levels the playing field and eliminates the upfront investment previously required for servers and datacenters.
Eric D. Boyd will present the common scenarios for incorporating Cloud services into your mobile apps. Eric will take us through Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Windows Azure and get us equipped with the necessary tools to build cloud services for our mobile apps using Windows Azure. Eric will also demonstrate how to create Windows Phone apps with Windows Azure services and point us to some tools that will help with Windows Phone development.
