[Sponsor] Microsoft Azure Mobile Services
Microsoft Azure Mobile Services provides a scalable and secure backend that can be used to power apps on any platform — iOS, Android, Windows, or Mac.
With Mobile Services, it’s easy to store app data in the cloud, authenticate users, and send push notifications.
Built from the ground up to be flexible and extensible, Mobile Services lets you code your app backend in C# or Node.js. You can save app data either on-premises or in Azure SQL database, blob storage, table storage, and MongoDB.
