Tackling the MS 70-355 exam

As my current MCSD - Store Apps (Win 8.1) certification will expire at the end of August I started looking at the next step MCSD - Universal Windows Platform certification.
I quickly passed the first one MS 70-354 but then I got stuck at the second and more difficult one - MS 70-355.

Not only the syllabus for the exam is way more extensive, but the lack of an official study guide makes it hard to study for it.

So I’ve attempted to dissect the skills measured section, broke it down 3 level deep down to the base topic for each chapter, and provide links to documentation for each section (where’ there’s a missing link, I did not find any relevant official documentation on that particular topic. I will update the post as I find them)

Skills measured

1. Recognize and apply a specified design pattern

Develop app and business logic, code that interfaces with other line-of-business (LOB) apps, and LOB Server Services (AD, SP)

Develop code for implementing secure cloud data services and storage

Develop code to implement authentication and business security requirements

Integrate cloud services and Azure App Service services

!!! The Mobile Services product that is referenced in the syllabus is now obsolete, replaced by the new Azure Mobile Apps component.
[Obsolete]Mobile Services documentation
Azure Mobile Apps documentation

Develop code that is maintainable and that supports app versioning, compatibility, and coexistence
