Well, this one went a bit longer than most, but only because Windows Azure Mobile Services has so many cool features that are relevant to just about anyone building mobile applications today - regardless of platform. Join me for this pre-Build 2013 session, in which I build a Windows Phone 8 application complete with data, authentication, and push notifications hosted on Window Azure Mobile Services Backend-as-a-Service offering.
