As part of the build-up to the official launch of Visual Studio 2013 on Wednesday 11/13, Microsoft has been running a series of guest blog posts, authored by members of the Microsoft MVP community.  I was fortunate enough to have been selected to be one of the authors for the series, and my post was published today.  In it, you can read about the various ways that access to Windows Azure Mobile Services functionality has been integrated into Visual Studio 2013.

The article can be accessed through the Microsoft MVP Award Program Blog, and ultimately appears in its entirety on the Microsoft Press Blog.  If you are at all interested in seeing how Mobile Services can easily be used to enhance your Windows Phone or Windows Store app, check out the article, and feel free to drop me any questions.
