Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Verifying Azure connectivity, part of Building Windows Phone 8 Apps with Azure.
…All right, we've updated our app to use Azure mobile services storage.…Time for a challenge.…The Azure Mobile Services Coding Challenge is to verify connectivity…with Windows Azure and disable the app if Azure is unavailable.…Since, we're now storing all of our data in the cloud.…If we can't get our initial list of object…from the cloud, we need to disable the app.…So, here's the challenge.…If we, can't get access to Windows Azure because we can't…download the initial data, we'll put in an item…in the items list that says ,Windows Azure is unavailable.…
And we'll put logic into the Plus button and…to the Item Selected button to make sure that…you can't add, delete, or update anything in your…UI because you don't have access to your actual database.…This coding challenge should probably take you about 10 minutes.…So go ahead and give that a try and then…we'll come back after that and I'll show you my solution.…
