Microsoft Azure offers many new business scenarios and solutions that are difficult to implement using traditional corporate environments. One of the most dynamically developing approaches is the concept of Big Data. When we talk about Big Data, everyone understands it differently.

Creating a great connected experience across multiple platforms is an essential element of great mobile applications. However, what happens when there is little to no connectivity—such as on an airplane or in some foreign countries? Does your mobile app effortlessly synchronize data when the device gets back online? Although users expect and deserve this type of behavior, James maintains that developing your own cloud backend and an API across all operating environments is time consuming and error prone. Even more, managing multiple projects, languages, IDEs, and continuous integration processes is unsustainable in the long run. Fear not! Industry leaders such as Amazon, Couchbase, and Microsoft can help solve this problem on iOS, Android, and Windows mobile devices. Join James to investigate the wide range of options for creating a connected and unconnected mobile experience. Come see a full implementation using the latest features of Azure App Service and mobile apps across iOS, Android, and Windows with Xamarin.
