Friday, 10:00 - 10:50
Track: Smart phone

Learn how to build mobile applications for Windows Phone 7, iOS, and Android that are backed by scalable cloud components hosted in Windows Azure. This demo-focused session will cover the end-to-end experience and address how to tackle issues such as authentication, storage, and notification using the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7, iOS, and Android.


Experience building mobile applications required; familiarity with Windows Azure helpful, but not required.
