Hi and welcome everybody to the first links of the month. With this March Edition I will change the links of the week into the links of the month, because I like to concentrate myself more on working on new tutorials which I can publish here. The links of the month will be published in the first week of a month and will show you what has happened the month before.
March was exciting month for Windows Azure developers. A lot of new things were published like some really cool updates to the Windows Azure Mobile Services or HDInsight.
- New Hadoop service + HTML5/JS (CORS), PhoneGap, Mercurial and Dropbox support
- Android Support, SQL Reporting Services, Active Directory, More…
- Getting Started with HDInsight – Shayne Burgess from the HDInsight Team gives an overview about the new released preview of the HDInsight Services.
- Developing for HDInsight – Eron Kelly shows how you as a developer can interact with HDInsight.
Windows Phone 8
- Using the SQLite database engine with Windows Phone 8 apps – Adam Denning gives a brief introduction how you can add SQLite support to your Windows Phone 8 app.
That’s it for today, but I can promise you that April will overtop March with some cool events I’m looking forward to like the AzureConf and the Global Windows Azure Bootcamp. If you’re interested in attending the Bootcamp in Berlin register today for it here.
