The Hitchhiker's Guide to Azure Mobile Services

Microsoft Azure Mobile Services provides a straightforward way to expose backend services to multiple applications on multiple devices.

In this presentation, we will show how to expose cloud data access and other processes via a REST interface and connect to that data from applications running on Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS and Android. You will also learn how to secure these services; how to scale these services to meet volatile demand; how to push notifications to client apps; and how to manage Mobile Services from within Visual Studio.
