HOL03 Full Day Hands-On Lab: An Introduction to Building XAML Applications


9:00am - 6:00pm

Level: Introductory

Billy Hollis

XAML Slinger

For those who have no experience or limited experience with XAML, this lab introduces the most important concepts you'll need to begin building applications. That includes fundamentals of XAML syntax, using the Visual Studio designers and editors, the composition model for putting XAML elements together, using the most important layout elements, and fundamentals of data binding and data templating. All concepts will be covered in the lecture, plus a hands-on lab session for you to practice the techniques. You can work alone or in pairs. Lab exercises will be done in Windows 10 UWP XAML, but all concepts and almost all the XAML in the exercises are compatible with Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) as well.

Attendance is limited.

Attendee Requirements: You must provide your own laptop computer for this hands-on lab.

Each attendee (or pair of attendees if you prefer to work as a pair) will need a Windows 10 laptop with Visual Studio 2015. A touch laptop is recommended but not required.
