Cross Platform Push with Azure
Pizza and networking time
The way users use smartphones is changing. Where before we had a limited number of social services (mostly Facebook) we could rely on the user to check their feeds and see if there were important changes. But now, especially with the proliferation of social services this is no longer practical.
Enter Push Notifications, a way to send the data the user deems important to them. While the idea of Push is not new, it is coming to the forefront after Microsoft built their entire platform around it. Its importance cannot be understated and has made other platforms look at how they can better utilize it.
This talk will focus on the user experience aspects of Push and why its important. We will then dive into a full example utilizing iOS, Android, .NET and Azure as we explore how Push is/can be handled on these various platforms.
