Windows Phone 7, Azure and Push Notification Tutorial Series in C#


I’ve just finished my miniseries on integrating Windows Phone 7, Windows Azure, SQL Azure, WCF and Push Notifications into a single package! This is my index post, so you can easily get to the other articles. Check out the demo video below.

Both videos are watchable in HQ (720p) which I recommend.

Series Index

There is no downloadable code for this series because of sensitivity with a production SQL Azure database.

However, most of the relevant code can be found in the entries in the series:

  1. Introduction
  2. Configuring SQL Azure
  3. Polling Stock Quotes with an Azure Worker Role
  4. Using a WCF Web Role to Register Phone Apps for Push Notifications
  5. Bringing It All Together With Windows Phone 7

 

Code Walkthrough

Here is a more detailed view of the various projects in video walkthrough format.

This is a great way to keep your users informed without draining their batteries or burying them in your app!
