by Michael Perry

Build feature-rich Windows 8 mobile apps on the Parse platform, including cloud data storage, sharing and security, push notifications, and offline capability.

What you'll learn

The Parse mobile backend as a service makes it easy to build and manage mobile apps. It stores your user's data, gives you query capabilities, and lets them securely share with collaborators. We'll build a feature rich Windows 8 application on this platform. You'll learn patterns for connecting related objects, querying through relations, and remaining functional while offline.
