Windows Phone / Azure Development by Dummies (Leo Junquera)

in .NET

Thursday, January 5, 2012, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

For the past 4 years my nose had been buried in spreadsheets, budgets, PowerPoint presentations, and meetings. Shortly after starting at Microsoft my manager challenged everybody in my role to come up with a better way to manage a shared spreadsheet. How could we get multi-user updating on-the-go? Here is how I got an app up and running using Windows Phone 7 and Azure. This is not a polished presentation by a MVP full of coding best practices. It is how I stumbled my way through a project using two platforms I have never touched before. It is essentially a coding by dummies for those who are interested in getting started or entertainment for the rest.
