      Nowadays, it is increasingly justified that there is a great potential in developing cloud-based applications. Taking the opportunity, the Faculty of Informatics at the University of Debrecen has launched a course titled Azure Cloud Technologies, which provided students with a deep insight into the features of Microsoft Azure. In this paper, we would like to show why it is important for students majoring computer science engineering to become acquainted with these technologies. By introducing an Azure-based application, we show how we can combine the knowledge of the analogue and digital electronics and programming provided by the computer science electronics program with the framework provided by Microsoft. The presented application is a Java-based image processing software for Android. We did some re-search on image processing, text and shape recognition, using the potential of cloud computing. The application is capable of recognizing characters that occur in a photo taken by the camera, and it can even calculate a handwritten mathematical expression. In this paper, we present the application in detail, show via this example why it is important to include these technologies in education and how they fit into the computer science engineering curriculum.
