This session will do a deep dive into APIs and demonstrate the differences, effectiveness and limitations of each.
The application life cycle of Windows Store apps presents some unique challenges to application developers. To help address some of these challenges, Windows includes a collection of background APIs. This session will do a deep dive into these APIs and demonstrate the differences, effectiveness, and limitations of each. In addition to looking at each API, we will take a look at some alternative approaches to use when the APIs will not work.
You will learn:
Gain a detailed understanding of each available background API and when to use each
Real-world examples of the APIs in action
Alternate approaches to use when the background APIs will not work
