Topic: Using Xamarin.Forms with Azure Mobile Services
Speaker: Fabian Williams
Xamarin.Forms with its Shared UI in addition to a Shared Back End code base allows you to use your C# skills and bring data driven mobile applications to market very quickly. WAMS is a mobile backend service which comes with a Data Service Layer in the form of a Web API that communicates to both SQL and NoSQL data stores. In addition to this data layer, you can also do Windows Azure Active Directory (WAAD) authentication as well as other Social authentication through social Identity Providers (Idp’s) such as Google, LiveID, Facebook, Twitter, etc. as well as Push Notifications and Scheduled Jobs. In this session we will see just how to surface and add information through iOS and Android Mobile Apps using a Xamarin.Forms solution, we will be using both a Shared Back End code as well as a Shared UI which will give us approximately 95% code re use.
