At Build 2014, Microsoft unveiled Windows 8.1 Update 1, Windows Phone 8.1, and Visual Studio 2013 Update 2. In addition, we introduced the ability to use the new Universal App project-type in Visual Studio to write for every Microsoft platform with a single, shared code base. I will introduce the Universal App model, demonstrating this new paradigm around the Visual Studio Solution – shared projects. What does it mean for Windows developers? What does it mean for every developer?
