Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand compute, storage, networking and content delivery capabilities to host, scale and manage Web applications on the Internet. The Windows Azure platform can be used both by applications running in the cloud and by applications running on local systems. 

Windows Phone 7 is the latest smartphone OS from Microsoft. Built from the ground-up, Windows Phone 7 brings together what you care about most, and brings it to you in an innovative and simple Metro UI interface. You and your content are at the center of it all through the Start screen experience with Live Tiles and integrated Hubs which provide rich & continuous user experience. 

In this webinar, we take a close look at how Azure & Windows Phones could play together; and in general, why cloud support is needed for most well-designed mobile solutions. We discuss techniques on how a Windows Phone developer might consider leveraging Windows Azure for cloud infrastructure needs. Attendees should be able to gain solid understanding & real-world examples on how to use Windows Azure to augment Mobile solutions, specially on Windows Phone.
