Today’s users don’t live on just a workstation or a laptop. With the proliferation of laptops, smart phones, and tablets people work from a variety of forms and clients. Building applications that can leverage a consistent view of identity, data and services will enable the workforce to be productive wherever they are. In this session we’ll explore how to design and build applications that span the various device forms and platforms using the tools and features of the Cloud that make it all possible and easy.

2. Session Objectives and TakeawaysWhat is Mobile Services?What are the components?Where to get the toolsHow to get started 3. Why Mobile Services? Apps are everywhere Wheres the Data Whos using it Minimize custom code Speed to market 4. Where does it run? Web Windows Android iOS Windows Phone etcDataSvcDataIdentity 5. Connected Patterns Create a Data Store Add services Host it somewhere Make it workDataSvcDataIdentity 6. Scenarios Modern Mobile ApplicationsWindows Store, Windows Phone, iOS, Android, HTML Common ScenariosReduce the friction and work required by providing solutions topatterns to work with authentication, pushnotification, structured storage and more Rapid DevelopmentProvision and deploy solutions in minutes rather than days orweeks 7. What is Mobile Services? 8. To get started Windows Azure subscription Database for storing information SQL Azure for rapid provisioning anddeployment Dynamic Schema Service configuration and scaling Scripting on data Identity and notifications SDK to enable identity and notifications 9. Code to instantiate Mobile Services In Application object add code to createan instance of your Mobile Service Call methods to operate on theservicei.e.public static MobileServiceClient MobileService = new MobileServiceClient("","OxxAAAAbbbCCCCCddEEEfffGGGh12345");private void ButtonSave_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e){var todoItem = new TodoItem { Text = TodoInput.Text };InsertTodoItem(todoItem);} 10. Storage SQL Database partitioned by schema Appx.ToDoItem Appy.ToDoItem Manage data by standard SQL tools SQL Management Studio Portal REST API CLI Tools 11. Work with SQL Tables created in portal Dynamic SQL Enabled Create poco classes and persist astables 12. Identity Use existing identity providers like Oauth Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc. Authorize to work with data Table options Everyone With application key Authenticated users Admins 13. Add code to triggerauthenticationprivate MobileServiceUser user;private async System.Threading.Tasks.Task Authenticate(){while (user == null){string message;try{user = await App.MobileService.LoginAsync(MobileServiceAuthenticationProvider.Facebook);message =string.Format("You are now logged in - {0}", user.UserId);}catch (InvalidOperationException){message = "You must log in. Login Required";}MessageBox.Show(message);}} 14. Server logic Scheduled jobs Notification services Diagnostics, logging and scale 15.
