Using Windows Azure with Windows Store Apps

Viewers: in countries Watching now:

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.

Topics include:
  • What is Windows Azure?
  • Creating Azure tables
  • Inserting, updating, and deleting data in tables
  • Uploading a blob to Windows Azure storage
  • Using shared access signatures
  • Implementing mobile services
  • Adding push notifications

Welcome

Hello, I'm Michael Lehman, and welcome to Using Windows Azure with Windows Store Apps. We're going to cover integrating Windows Azure backend services with your Windows Store apps running on Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. We're going to talk about Azure tables, Azure blobs, Azure Mobile Services, and Azure push notifications. We're also going to talk about integrating with third party services like SendGrid to send email, and Twilio to send SMS messages.

We're going to talk about how to store data using Azure tables. We're also going to talk about how to store data using Azure mobile services. Let's roll up our sleeves and get started.

There are currently no FAQs about Using Windows Azure with Windows Store Apps.
