Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 9th and 10th, 2010session
Windows Phone 7 Meets Cloud Computing - Supplying Mobile Devices with the Power of the Cloud
About This Session
No phone application is an island. Mobile applications are hungry for a couple of things. First, they need data. Second, they need computing power to process the data. The obvious solution to computing power and connected data is the 'cloud.'
If you plan to connect mobile applications to the cloud, then this session is for you. We will start by migrating on-premise data to the cloud, specifically SQL Azure. Next, we will need to create web services to expose that data and make it available to Windows Phone 7 applications. Rather than just show you how to connect to some 'already created' data source, I show you how to build your own infrastructure to expose cloud based data to the world. This is a soup to nuts session that builds everything from scratch and gives you a limitless ability to consume data from Windows Phone 7 applications. I presented this session to 1000's during the Visual Studio 2010 launch and it was very well received. Join me in what I consider to be absolutely essential Windows Phone 7 development skills.
