From the author: 

Windows Azure & Windows Phone seem to be two very popular technologies out of Redmond right now.

There is obviously a lot of buzz around cloud infrastructure involving Azure solutions and the wonderful developer story that we have for Windows Phone development. But, should these two platforms work together & if so, can they? How can you as a Mobile/Windows Phone developer utilize the cloud?

In the first chapter, we talk about how to leverage Windows Azure to supplement our Windows Phone application.
