Come learn how to build .NET Universal Windows apps in Visual Studio 2015.

In Windows 10, Universal Windows apps use a new flagship version of .NET that gives customers faster app startup times, and gives developers a larger and more compatible .NET API surface area. In this talk, we will explore the new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and the tools to create apps for all Windows 10 devices. The session will begin with project creation and go through the end to end developer story, all the way up to store submission of the application. The talk includes a demonstration of how to create an adaptive UI and adaptive code to span across multiple Windows 10 device families. It will focus on the .NET features that are new to UWP.

You will learn:

  • How native .NET compilation makes your app start up quicker and what it means for your developer's workflow
  • What .NET Core is, how it differs from the desktop .NET Framework, and how and when to use it to share code between desktop, Universal Windows and ASP.NET server applications
