Most mobile apps have a common set of requirements. You need to work with data on the back end, you need to authenticate your users and make authorization decisions about what they can do in the app and on the back end, you need to send notifications to your users, and you may need to work with some data offline. However, the plethora of ways you can address those requirements and the infrastructure you have to set up and integrate with can be daunting. Azure Mobile App Services gives you a straightforward, integrated approach that lets you pick the building blocks you need and compose them with a single back end entry point in Azure. Azure Mobile App Services is a replacement for Azure Mobile Services, but if you learned how to use those before, you have very little to learn to use the new App Services. And some of what you can build can also be shared building blocks with other kinds of apps such as Web Apps and Logic Apps. This session will give you a good understanding of what Azure Mobile App Services are all about, how they relate to what came before, what the capabilities are and how to get started leveraging them.

You will learn:

  • How to work with Mobile App Data on Azure
  • How to secure your mobile app with Azure App Services
  • How to send notifications to users through Azure App Services
