On Friday Microsoft has released some additional resources which should help you to get started with the Windows Azure Mobile Services. Here are some details on what has been added:
- A new Code Samples for Windows Store apps page on WindowsAzure.com
- An update to the Tutorials and Resources page, which now includes new tutorials and related videos from the new Windows Azure Mobile Services Channel 9 series
- Five additional Windows Store + Mobile Services scenario based code samples
This sample provides an end to end location scenario with a Windows Store app using Bing Maps and a Windows Azure Mobile Services backend. It shows how to add places to the Map, store place coordinates in a Mobile Services table, and how to query for places near your location.
My Store – This sample demonstrates how you can enqueue and dequeue messages from your Windows Store apps into a Windows Azure Service Bus Queue via Windows Azure Mobile Services. This code sample builds out an ordering scenario with both a Sales and Storeroom and app.
This sample shows how you can implement a Feedback charm option in your Windows Store application and submit the feedback to be both stored Windows Azure Mobile Services and emailed directly to you.
This demonstrates how to store your files such as images, videos, docs or any binary data off device in the cloud using Windows Azure Blob Storage. In this example we focus on capturing and uploading images, with the same approach you can upload any binary data to Blob Storage.
The My Trivia sample demonstrates how you can easily add, update and view a leaderboard from your Windows Store applications using Windows Azure Mobile Services.
Have fun with these ones and happy coding!
