Cool New Mobile Services Content for PhoneGap and .NET Backend
I wanted to do a quick post to highlight some cool new Azure Mobile Services and Azure Notification Hubs samples and content that we recently published…
PhoneGap Push Notification Sample
I recently published an updated version of my TodoListNotifications sample for PhoneGap on GitHub. This new version registers with Notification Hubs for push notifications by using the integrated REST APIs provided by Mobile Services--which are actually simpler to use than the Notification Hubs REST APIs. It works on iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 devices.
I also wrote a new blog post on the Azure Mobile Services team blog that details how the sample works.
Scheduled Jobs .NET Backend Tutorial
- Shows how to create and register a scheduled job in a .NET backend WebAPI project (as promised by the title).
- Features the LINQ-to-Twitter provider, a super easy way to make OAuth 2.0 queries against Twitter.
- Requires changes to the existing data model, which is always exciting using Code First Entity Framework.
- Demonstrates direct access of SQL Database tables from the backend using Entity Framework.
Mike Wasson published a new topic Creating a Leaderboard App with Azure Mobile Services .NET Backend that describes how he built a leaderboard sample app (Windows Store client) for a mobile game platform using Mobile Services with a .NET backend service that supports the app.
