Differences in designing apps for Windows Phone and Windows Store

  • Jan 21, 2014 · 5:45 PM
  • Ottawa Microsoft Office

Si Systems is sponsoring the pizza for this event

NOTE: Date changed from Jan 16 to Jan 21 to accommodate MS scheduling event.

Topic: XAML was introduced for Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.0 for next generation products: Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight. With the advent of .net ‘apps’, XAML once again appears for use with Windows Phone (.NET 4.0) and Windows Store (.NET 4.5) apps.

This talk will explore the differences in the use of XAML, code-behind and more for Windows Phone and Windows Store apps (with a sprinkling of WPF). Points covered:

- XAML Controls
- Designing ’just’ with XAML
- Designing with Code-behind
- Databases
- Sharing code between apps
- Configuration vs Convention
- Resource files
- Images and Voice
- .NET 4.0 async vs .NET 4.5 async
- Submission Process
