SmartHotel360 - E2E Reference Sample and Azure Backend


We are happy to announce the release of SmartHotel360. This release intends to share a simplified version of SmartHotel360 reference sample apps used at Connect(); 2017 Keynotes. If you missed it, you can watch Scott Guthrie’s Keynote: Journey to the Intelligent Cloud in Channel 9.

SmartHotel360 is a fictitious smart hospitality company showcasing the future of connected travel.
Their vision is to provide:

  • Intelligent, conversational, and personalized apps and experiences to guests
  • Modern workplace experiences and smart conference rooms for business travelers
  • Real-time customer and business insights for hotel managers & investors
  • Unified analytics and package deal recommendations for campaign managers.

There’s never been a better time to be a developer. Our intent with these set of reference apps and Azure backend is to show developers how to get started building the apps of the future, today!

You can find a PowerPoint deck that you can download and use for your presentations in the docs folder of this repo.
