Mike dove straight into an ambitious, code-heavy presentation to demonstrate building out a complete vertical slice of a "Rock, Paper, Scissors" game. Built on a combination of technologies such as Silverlight, Windows Phone (Mango), and Azure, Mike explained many of the fundamental components of a complete system.

Some great takeaways from the meeting were how to setup an Azure hosted instance and using authentication providers like Windows Live Id. Additionally, anyone with an MSDN subscription should be aware of their free Azure benefits!
