    Question Fastest steps to getting an Azure based service for WP8 clients implemented?

    I'm in the process of coding up a web service that corrects common mistakes that the WinPhone speech recognition engine/service makes. It will run on Azure and be made accessible to WP8 phone clients. My initial hardware target is Lumia WP8 phones.

    I am looking for an article, tools, resources, code samples, etc. that can show me the fastest steps towards implementing the client/server bridge using VS 2012 (Ultimate) and C#. I'd prefer a RESTFUL based solution but if the best technique abstracts away the implementation details fully then I'll use whatever is best. Bonus points for a solution that shows me a robust way to control access to the service so that only my client side apps can make calls.

    Are you familiar with Azure Mobile Services, it allows for quick development of relatively simple client/server services?

    Here are a few quick start tutorials and some video resources from Channel 9

    You either build something from scratch or modify the example until it fits what you'd like to do. Once everything is working, you can then layer on Authentication.

    Oh, and Mobile Services handles push too... http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/de...with-push-wp8/

    Hello theothernt,

    I read about it in passing. Now that you've highlighted it with that wonderful array of videos from Channel 9, my favorite C#/Windows tutorials source, I'll dig into it right away. A big thanks!

    Are you near Trinity college?:
