Windows Azure Mobile Services: Why You Should Care?


Recent public release of Azure Mobile Services highlights a trend (think Azure web sites) when the cloud platform like Azure provides the accelerator for a developer and allows him/her to focus on the business and UX while taking care of the backend services such as data storage, user authentication, and often push notification services.
