You can use a variety of different technologies and back ends to build today's mobile applications. During this session, you'll look at how a mobile backend is created using Azure. You'll also step through the creation of several mobile clients using different development technologies including Cordova, UWP, Xamarin and native UI technologies. Finally, you'll discuss how these different development technologies stacked up against each other for our app's needs.

You will learn:

  • How Azure and other cloud providers can be leveraged to create a mobile backend
  • How to use different mobile technologies to create apps for Android, iOS, Windows, and web
  • How these different technologies compare and in what situations they excel or are weak
