Geoff Webber-Cross has commercial and personal experience in developing Windows 8 and Windows Phone applications, and using Azure for websites, mobile services, web services, and Windows services. He enjoys learning about new technologies and solving difficult software problems.

Windows Azure is the type of cloud technology that is most popular, and is getting better each day. With the increasing number of users of Windows Phones and Windows 8, the necessity for a good, robust cloud service to support apps is increasing. Windows Azure Mobile Services is a set of Windows Azure hosted services that are designed to quickly build, deploy, and manage a mobile web-connected app.

The book discusses different service permission options and demonstrates how to use an authentication provider in applications. Scripts are examined throughout the book with examples of modifying table methods, creating custom APIs, and making push notification requests. Push notifications are a major feature of Mobile Services, so this subject is thoroughly examined with examples using the native PNS libraries and scaling up notifications with Notifications Hub.
