Session: Xamarin apps and the outside world

No apps can work without services. A weather app, a Line-of-business app, even a game needs to store and retrieve data and all of this goes through services. Cloud platforms such as Azure are increasingly playing a more important role to deliver data to apps as well.

In this session, we will explore how Xamarin apps can connect with a wide variety of services to do all kinds of data-related operations, from simply storing data over streaming data to receiving push notifications. And all of this in a cross-platform way of course!
