    Hi developers!

    We've just published a new code sample which covers a UWP app that runs on desktops, tablets and phones:

    SnapGold is a photo-sharing UWP code sample that runs on Azure App Services and uses Azure DocumentDB and Azure Blob Storage for its data storage. You should be able to get this sample running locally using its mock (i.e. dummy) service in 5 minutes and then fully link to your own Azure App service in less than 30 minutes.

    The app highlights best practices in the following areas, which you can use to model your own app:
    • UWP optimized for desktop & mobile
    • MVVM with responsive layout
    • Azure App Service
    • Azure DocumentDB & Blob storage back end
    • Azure App Service Authentication (w/Facebook/Twitter/Google/Microsoft account)
    • Authenticated push notifications
    • Instrumented with Visual Studio Application Insights

    This should make it a great source of code you can copy into your own apps. It also provides an example of what a real-world app architecture might look like. The decoupled architecture makes it easy to reuse code or to make changes and build your own photo sharing app, which you can then publish in the Windows Store.


    Here's the link to the Github repository:

    There's also some more details about bringing up the service in the following blog post:

    Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions
