The idea presented in this article emphasizes the need for a simple cross platform video note taking application. The cross platform compatibility is achieved by the way of HTML5 features such as Local Storage API, Video and Audio tags and the contenteditable attribute. The app features single sign on using OAuth for ruling out the need to add yet another pair of credentials. I am planning to implement Skydrive Cloud Storage for storing the notes. The common set of features that are available in the other note taking apps are applicable such as Annotations, Tagging, Filtering by criteria, Sorting etc.
How it Works
Using the code
The code is being developed for the model and presentation layer using jQuery(for querying the DOM) and Knockout.js and Twitter Bootstrap for Responsive Design. The integration of Skydrive storage is underway.
Role of Windows Azure
- Perfect for the integration of Skydrive storage API with the Azure Cloud Services
- High performance computing coupled with unmatched Scalability for the need of near native app performance.
Points of Interest
I'm completely new to Windows Azure, though I'd experience deploying some commendable projects on Shared Servers and Staging Server. This should be the moment for me to fulfill the desire of deploying the webapp on Windows Azure.
