This book is a short, fast and focused guide to enhance your Windows 8 applications by leveraging the power of Windows Azure Mobile Services
What I like most about this book is the approach the writer has taken from the very chapter of the book. We have a real-life problem to solve by leveraging Azure Mobile Services. Here is short extract on the problem.
The TileTapper game consists of a grid board seeded from a simple Boolean array of
active or inactive tiles. When the app launches, it prompts the user to log in using the
Windows Live connect authentication provider, downloads levels and current high
score from our back end service, and then begins the game.
So as you progress through the chapters, the writer solves the problem by show casing each aspect of Azure Mobile Service is applied. It also comes with access to the source code for each chapter – so essentially you can dry run through the code as you read the contents of the book.
I am not a first time user of Azure mobile services, but I have learned a few tips and tricks on how to design apps leveraging the power of Windows Azure Mobile Services.
I recommend this book to any developer leveraging the power of Windows Azure Mobile Services
