Data storage, authentication/authorization, push notifications, custom APIs, blob storage, etc.FlexibleNeed something lightweight? Azure is there.Need something robust and powerful? Azure is there.C# clientsIm a frontend developer, I care a lot about how easy this makes MY job (selfish)Many C# clients are written by Java developers, etc.Easy to use C# clientAbstracts away much of pain of using a RESTful APIC# FeaturesAsync / Await / TPLUses C# idiomsProperties, Fluent APISeems obvious, but not always true (first class citizen)14 Shared C# codebase 100% native API access High performance iOS C# UI Windows C# UIAndroid C# UIShared C# Mobile C# Server Linux/MonoCoreCLRAzureShared C# Client/ServerXamarin Apps + Backend ServicesWith Xamarin it just isnt your front end in C# it is your full backend server as well.
