Series: Office 365/SharePoint Online + Windows Azure Authentication Challenges - About this Series

I did a session at Microsoft’s SharePoint Conference 2011 on integrating Office365/SharePoint Online & Windows Azure. In building out the demo for that I ran into some challenges when I tried to have my custom Windows Azure solution talk to and interact with a hosted SharePoint 2010 site collection living in my Office 365 SharePoint Online space. I ran into a few challenging spots when I tried using any of the four remote data access techniques available to developers. This blog series will talk about some of these challenges and how to overcome them.
