My latest article is now online. In this article, I talk about writing mobile apps for SharePoint on-prem and Office 365.
This is a very big topic, impossible to cover in one article. So I have split this into numerous articles. In the first article, which is online now, I present and argue various technical challenges, and based on that I discuss an architecture, and write up a mobile backend that is fully .NET, supports well known open standards, and you could run it in Azure WebSites if you wished.
In subsequent articles, I will use this same backend to create mobile apps in various platforms, such as Cordova, Swift/ObjectiveC, Windows Phone/8/Universal etc.
Hope you like it, my first article in this series,
