T20 Windows Store Application Contracts and Extensibility
Date: Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Time: 4:15 pm – 5:30 pm
In this session, we will explore these contracts and how they can be used in any Windows Store application to provide a seamless, integrated experience for users. Contracts are a new feature of Windows 8 Store applications that allow interaction with the operating system and other Store applications in a standard way. With contracts, applications can implement interfaces to allow searching, sharing, settings, app-to-app file picking, and more.
TH03 Building Your First Windows Phone 8 Application
Date: Thursday, August 22, 2013
Time: 8:00 am – 9:15 am
Expand your mobile horizons with Windows Phone 8! Developing applications for the phone is extremely similar to building a XAML application for the desktop. In this session, I will demonstrate the fundamentals of Windows Phone development while building a very simple application which covers all of the important points of the new platforms architecture, including the developer tools and device emulator and touch input.
