DevRadio webcast: Patrick Godwin on “How I Wrote and Deployed a Cloud-Powered Windows 8 App in Six Days”

I interviewed Patrick Godwin as part of the Microsoft DevRadio series on Channel 9.  Patrick has a cool story, in that he is a student (at the University of Michigan – go blue!), and he wrote and deployed a Windows 8 app to the Windows Store in just six days with the help of Windows Azure Mobile Services. In this show, he demos his “Would You Rather… ” app and then shows us how he used Windows Azure Mobile Services to get it done.

Here are some links from the show:
