Windows Azure services can add a lot of functionality to your Windows Phone 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 implement mobile services storage with 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.

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
