With the Mobile Apps feature of Azure App Service, it is easy to rapidly build engaging cross-platform and native apps for iOS, Android, Windows or Mac; store app data in the cloud or on-premises; authenticate users; send push notifications; or add your custom backend logic in C# or Node.js
During the course of the lab the participants will get hands-on experience in building a full fledged App using Azure Mobile services. Below are the demos which we will cover -
1) How to write a mobile app for and connect to the Azure Mobile Apps.
2) How we deal with push notifications.
3) Include authentication in your apps.
4) Offline Sync in your apps
Aparna’s first encounter with Windows app development was through the ‘I Unlock Joy’ and ‘Imagine Cup’ competitions when at college. Since then, she has carved a niche for herself in Windows application development both for gaming and utility apps. Currently, she has a cool job in the Windows app consult team at Microsoft where she assists developers in developing/improving their apps by giving guidance on architecture, design, performance and monitory benefits. She likes teaching and has conducted several workshops on Windows App development.
