We’re excited to kick-off #AzureChat, a new Twitter Chat brought to you by the @WindowsAzure team!

#AzureChat focuses on different aspects of cloud computing and best practices on developing for the cloud. Want to learn more about a specific cloud service? Looking to hear about tips and tricks, developer trends and best practices?  #AzureChat is the place to join, share your thoughts, hear from Microsoft experts and fellow devs in the community.

On Thursday, October 10th at 12:30 PST, we’ll host a live Q&A discussion focused on Windows Azure Mobile Services and Notification Hubs with Josh Twist and Kirill Gavrylyuk. Josh and Kirill work on the engineering team for Mobile Services and Notification Hubs—technologies that enable developers to quickly build connected and scalable mobile apps across the Windows, iOS and Android platforms.  They are here to answer your burning mobile app development questions—anything from when to use push notifications within Mobile Services vs broadcast push notifications within Notification Hubs, to effectively utilize different data storage options.  This is a great chance to pick their brains in real time and for you to share what you know to help other developers. 

How #AzureChat works:

  • An optional tweet chat “room” is available for you to monitor and participate in the conversation
  • You can also use Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, or any other Twitter client. You’ll just need to set up a column with the hashtag #AzureChat.
  • Join us at 12:30pm PST on Thursday, October 10th for the kick-off of the chat.  (You can join in any time during the 30 minute chat if you are running late).
  • @WindowsAzure will ask a series of questions, each beginning with “Q1,” “Q2,” and so on.
  • @joshtwist and @kirillg_msft will respond using “A1”, “A2”, and so on.
  • We want your thoughts!  If you’d like to answer a question, just tweet back with “A1,” “A2,” etc. to the corresponding question
