Live Services Integration

  • Samidip Basu


After the cloud augmentation discussion in the last chapter, hopefully you see the clear benefits it brings to Windows 8 Store apps, providing the alive-and-connected feel and centralized data/services for the developer to manage. But are you a little suspect of feasibility and concerned about the user base and costs as you maintain databases/services in the cloud? Sounds like you need a cloud-in-a-box delivered for your developer usage at no cost to you. Enter Microsoft’s Live Services, a suite of services empowering users with open APIs for developer consumption. This chapter will walk you through integrating Live Services in Windows 8 Store apps. You get to leverage the cloud as a service, and users gets to reuse what’s already well known. Sounds like a win-win situation, right? Let’s get started.
