WindowsPhone Development with Dani Diaz

MoCloud: Useful Cloud Patterns for Mobile Developers

If you want to spicy up a resume with the latest tech scene buzz words, I can’t think of two better ones than “mobility” and “cloud”. We all know that both of these technologies will play a big role in the future of our industry. In this session, I will outline several popular design patterns for building powerful and scalable mobile applications. While all of the patterns shown are “cloud provider” independent, I will concentrate on Windows Azure using iOS, Android and Windows Phone as the mobile clients.

Introduction To The Async Framework

Asynchronous programing has been available to .Net developers since version 1. It is a technique use to maintain responsiveness of thread and not blocking it while an operation is being performed. Asynchrony preserves responsiveness while synchronous call blocks, until the result is returned. However the current async patterns available to ..net developers makes developer do funny things to your app code. In this session I will introduce the new Async framework available to Windows Phone, Windows 8 and .Net v.Next

    I wish there was more material specifically dealing with Windows Phone, but perhaps my view is a little skewed because of the material that was presented, I have been actively using it (async, MVVM) for over a year now and wasn't really anything new to me.

    Objectively speaking however it was well presented and if I had not known the material beforehand it would have been a very useful presentation.
