Appsterdam Guru Sessions are informal, very hands-on workshops to share a technology or a technique. Explanation from your peers, open discussion and practical experience are key to these sessions.
What’s This Session About?
Mobile Apps can go viral in a matter of hours, putting a tremendous amount of stress on the backend services of your Apps. Cloud Computing is designed for scale thus making it extremely suitable for hosting the backend services for your Apps. The Windows Azure Platform is Microsoft’s Cloud Computing Platform. It consists of a extensive set of services that offer scalability and connectivity features for your services in a pay-per-use model.
On January 31, I will lead a hands-on session to teach developers about Windows Azure, Microsoft’s platform as a service (PaaS) offering. The session will focus on the Azure components most relevant to mobile app developers. Following a short introduction to the overall Windows Azure Platform, you’ll get experienced in deploying a simple cloud service, securing it, storing data, and sending push notifications to your Apps.
Hyves will host us at their headquarters, and best of all, we’ll round off the afternoon with pizza and beer.
I’ll see you there?
