The next iteration of Azure Mobile Apps Node.js Server SDK has finally landed. For those drawing a blank on Microsoft’s new announcement, in 2015 Azure Mobile Apps feature Azure App Service enabled backend support for mobile APIs in .NET and new mobile features to existing ASP.NET web apps or web pages to the .NET language.
Alongside the release of the Azure App Service support was Microsoft’s new initiative of Node SDK for Azure Mobile Apps which helped to extend the experience of Node.js. apps. According to Microsoft, “this enables you to build and run mobile backends using Node.js on App Service, as well as add push notifications, mobile auth, offline sync and other mobile features and backend APIs to any Node.js app running on App Services.”
