Senior Technical Evangelist


Universal Apps let you build apps for Windows Store and Windows Phone simultaneously while sharing code, controls, and other assets between them. In this session, you'll learn how Universal Apps work as we build a simple app from start to finish using this new project type. We'll cover what can and can't be shared, and how to best structure your project for maximum re-use.

You will learn:

  • Introduction to Universal Apps
  • How to Share code between projects
  • How to maximize code re-use between Windows Store and Windows Phone
