Integrate solutions with Azure Automation - Part 1 (Wunderlist)

In the last couple of months I’ve been using Azure Automation more and more to integrate several different solutions calling their REST APIs.

In this first part of this series of integrating solutions with Azure Automation I will discuss the Wunderlist Service I started to use for integration with Azure Automation. The end goal of this series is to demonstrate how you can use Azure Automation to integrate all kinds of web services. In this case to use Wunderlist to provision a Virtual Machine in Azure.

What is Wunderlist?

According to their website Wunderlist is the easiest way to get stuff done. Whether you’re planning a holiday, sharing a shopping list with a partner or managing multiple work projects, Wunderlist is here to help you tick off all your personal and professional to-dos.

You can download Wunderlist from here. There are clients for Windows devices, Android, Apple you name it.

Here you can see a screenshot from the web version. You can see I created a task to write this first blog post Smile


And what it makes even better is that on June 2nd 2015 Wunderlist joined Microsoft.

So if you want to follow along with this series about integrating solutions with Azure Automation you should start with downloading the Wunderlist clients and create a free account.


What’s next?

In the next blog post I’ll discuss the Wunderlist REST API we used to create the PowerShell Wunderlist module.

Hope you enjoy this new series of blog posts.
