Abstract:

In this presentation, Laurent Bugnion, a member of Microsoft's new Cloud Developer Advocate team, will show you a few new features of Azure and Xamarin, such as the serverless Azure Functions, Azure Tables, the Azure Mobile Center and the Xamarin Live Player. We will see demos showing how to build a new Azure Function application in the web portal and in Visual Studio, learn how to consume this function application from a Xamarin client, use Azure Mobile Center to add push notifications to this application. Finally we will see how the new Xamarin Live Player can be used to build Xamarin.Forms applications for iOS without needing a Mac computer.
