Windows Azure Mobile Services + Azure in the Real World

When: Thu November 15, 2012 6:00 pm

Organization: Boston Azure Cloud User Group

Location: Microsoft NERD, One Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA


We have two great Windows Azure talks for Nov 15: Windows Azure Mobile Services (John Garland) & Real World Azure (Bob Goodearl).

First, Bob Goodearl will give a behind-the-scenes look at how Windows Azure was used for the web site for Boston Code Camp #18. This is a great opportunity to see how some of the Windows Azure features - like Windows Azure Web Sites, Windows Azure Cloud Services, Access Control Service, SQL Azure, Blob Storage, and Windows Azure Diagnostics - were used to realize a real web application.

Next, John Garland (senior consultant at Wintellect and mobile nerd) will introduce Windows Azure Mobile Services (WAMS). WAMS is amazing in its simplicity for building a back-end to your mobile applications - whether Windows Phone, iOS, and (soon) Android. The programming model is unique, and it has an extra coolness factor by being implemented using Node.js (so you get to write server-side code in javascript).

We also may have another cool surprise.
