Thank you to everyone who attended my #DiDN12 session on this cloudy (pun intended) Saturday morning. I greatly appreciate everyone’s dedication to get up early and give up half of their weekend to come listen to the bald French-Canadian yap about about Windows Phone development and the cloud at 8:00AM. As promised, I have packaged all my presentation slides and demos together for your review. This will give you a chance to dig deeper into the code since we had limited time this morning.
You can download the presentation and demos here. The ZIP file contains the following:
- DIDN12 NLandry - Windows Phone and Azure.pdf: The slide deck I presented, which contains all the content and reference links discussed for you to get started
- WPCloudAppDIDN folder: The first demo I showed to demonstrate how to use the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone (WATWP). You can easily recreate this demo yourself using the Windows Phone Cloud Application project template in Visual Studio after installing the WATWP.
- PhoneAppCloudDiDN folder: The second demo I showed to demonstrate how to add simple support for Windows Azure Storage Tables in your Windows Phone application, including a Web Role that acts as a proxy to protect your Storage Account key on the server. This demo is easily created using the following NuGet packages:
- WPCloudNotificationsDemo folder: The last Windows Phone Notifications demo I showed at the end but did not have time to dive in the code. This demo is easily created using the following NuGet packages:
