Windows Azure Mobile Services (WAMS) is a turn-key backend solution for applications, mobile or otherwise, to utilize structured storage in the cloud. It includes basic data access functionality and built-in authentication with Microsoft Account, Facebook, Twitter and Google, as well as push notification to the client app. This compact, to the point book gives you just what you need to get up and running with these tools.

  • Demonstrates how to add, update, delete and retrieve data using standard .NET classes or REST-based requests
  • Describes how Windows Azure Mobile Services supports authentication of the user and looks at the mechanism used to authenticate the user
  • Features a number of examples that show how the WAMS scripting capability can be used to meet real-world business needs
  • Examines the limits of Windows Azure Mobile Services, including scalability, database integration, and redundancy options

This book shows you exactly how to take advantage of the functionality offered by Windows Azure Mobile Services.
