There are a variety of platforms and frameworks which can be used to build games on both Windows and Windows Phone depending on the complexity of the game and the developer's skill level. In this session, we will delve into the many options available to developers, including DirectX, Unity, MonoGame, and more!
Time: 9:30am – 10:45pm
A variety of new features were added to the .NET 4.5 Framework, including support for easily writing asynchronous code. This session will introduce the concepts of asynchronous programming, .NET Tasks, how to ensure your UI remains responsive, and how to do all of this properly in your own applications using the new "async"and "await" keywords. If you're looking for ways to provide a better, smoother experience for your users, don't miss this session!
VSH10 Building Your First Universal Application for Windows Phone and Windows Store
Date: Thursday, November 20, 2014
Time: 11:00am – 12:15pm
Universal Apps enable developers to build apps for Windows Store and Windows Phone simultaneously while sharing code, controls, and other assets between them. In this session, you will learn how Universal Apps work as we build a simple app from start to finish using this new project type. We will cover what can and can't be shared, and how to best structure your project for maximum re-use.
