In this hands-on workshop, you will not only learn what you need to know to create a working application, but you will actually build an application before you leave! You pick either XAML or JavaScript/HTML, bring a Windows 8.1 device (or VM) and any version of Visual Studio 2013, and you will be writing code almost from the very start!

If you don’t have a Windows 8.1 machine or just want to listen to lecture, I will be developing the applications live on stage during the lab time, so you can chose to develop the applications hands on or watch the application get developed in front of your very eyes.

You will learn:

  • Fundamentals of Windows 8.1 Modern App Design
  • Fundamentals of building Windows 8.1 Apps (binding, layout, lifetime management, navigation, and more)
  • Where Windows 8.1 Apps fit into the ecosystem
