Description: How to build connected multi-device apps using Backend as a Service (BaaS).
Objective: Learn how to use BaaS in your application to gain easy access to common services in the cloud without having to build or maintain the backend services yourself.
Presenter: David Intersimone, Embarcadero.
Event: RAD in Action
Software Versions Supported: Delphi XE6, C++ Builder XE6, RAD Studio XE6
One of the cool new features in RAD Studio XE6 is Backend as a Service (BaaS). BaaS, also known as “mobile backend as a service” (MBaaS), provides mobile app developers with a way to link their applications to backend cloud storage and APIs exposed by back end applications. It does this, while also providing features such as push notifications, user management, and integration with social networking services. RAD Studio XE6 BaaS integrates with leading BaaS providers which includes support for Kinvey and Parse out of the box.
With BaaS, you get easy access to common services in the cloud such as
- Build multi-device service based applications using the FireMonkey and VCL frameworks
- Use push notifications to engage your users on any device or platform
- Access data and object storage in the cloud
- Provide application and storage security with user authentication
- Work with popular BaaS providers including Kinvey and Parse using a component based API
In this RAD in Action webinar video, David I explains how to gain easy access to common services in the cloud without having to build or maintain the back-end services yourself.
