Data is everywhere. Open source world gives us an opportunity to use advanced technical solutions to handle not uncommon problems of huge amounts of data that require low latency access. Can we use our favorite language such as F# for that? The answer is yes! This talk is focused on showing how to create a Cassandra cluster based on Docker, and how to build an application that connects to it and uses it with F# in a cross platform way! I will show how easy it is to use fully open source tools such as F# with Project Scaffold in Xamarin Studio on OSX to create a solution that uses advanced open source distributed database Cassandra on Docker.
You have likely already produced an Azure Mobile Apps backend and Xamarin client that implements a basic task list. In this session, we will take you beyond the basics, implementing enterprise authentication using Azure AD and personalizing the cloud data so that many people can use your application securely; finally showing you how those changes can be propagated to your Xamarin client. At the end of the session, you will understand how to build a secure enterprise mobile backend with a cross-platform mobile client.
