Windows Azure services can add a lot of functionality to your Windows Store apps, with very little work. This course focuses on just four of its many features: tables, blobs, mobile services, and push notifications. Author Michael Lehman shows how to store data using the Azure Tables API and blobs—binary data containers that make it easy to save images and other information. He also shows how to send email with SendGrid and SMS messages with Twilio, services you can integrate with your app using the Azure Mobile Services API. Last, he'll show you how to send push notifications, which allows you to very simply message millions of devices—or at least however many are running your app.
