NASCAR sanctions over 360 motor racing events each year, including the IMSA series covering manufacturers like Lamborghini, Porsche and more. When NASCAR wanted to update the mobile app for fans, they were looking for an immersive experience both during the race and non-race times. Watch this video to hear how a team of Open Source LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Php) developers migrated their app to Azure, extended the capabilities using Azure services and used Xamarin to build a cross-device app in just 13 weeks.
In this episode you'll get an overview of how this project took advantage of the cloud with Microsoft Azure and was built using ASP.NET 5. We'll explore the details of how Azure was used in the applications architecture, and then jump into the details of the web site itself including discussions around Entity Framework 7, web site optimization, responsive UX design and much more.
We'll end the episode with a tour of the web site we made over the 3-day event, with all source code available now on GitHub: https://github.com/htbox/
