I did a presentation at Microsoft Melbourne on IOT: "Scaling Windows Embedded with Azure: IOT" aka "Windows Embedded + Azure = IOT". Will post slides and code here. Demo is Arduino board communicating with Azure Mobile Services.
An MVP Comcamp Twitter: #MVPComcamp.
SYNERGY: Was able to demonstrate ToDo data generated on Universal app (phone and desktop) or Arduino was accessible from other. Also, was able to see records on Azure portal, remove them there and see this reflected on other platforms.

This is now backed by a Codeplex project https://Ardjson.codeplex.com (Previously CEJSon)
