Objective

In this session, we will look at how we can build mobile applications leveraging the power of the cloud. Using standard development platforms like Eclipse or Visual Studio, we see how we can add additional capabilities like authentication, notifications and offline support to our applications easily. We then take a look at deploying and monitoring these applications on the cloud and configuring our applications to scale on demand to reach a global audience.
