Fun with Windows 8.1

  • Feb 13, 2014 · 6:30 PM

We'll be joined by Microsoft's Mike Taulty to look at Windows 8.1 development from a Windows Phone developers perspective.

If you've already looked at developing for both platforms then 8.1 adds some great new features. Even if you've previously put off porting your Windows Phone app, the new features in 8.1 may make it a more appealing prospect.
After all, don't you want to see your apps running on a 2520?

If you're only interested in phone development and not in developing for Windows 8(.1) there will still be useful things you can learn by attending. ;)

There will also be the usual mix of other shorter talks and demos, plus the opportunity to meet with other Windows Phone developers.

As ever we'd love to hear from anyone who wants to share their experiences with developing apps. If you've recently released an app or update or are about to then we'd love to hear about it. Please get in touch if you have something to talk about.

Nokia will be providing some food and drink too.

    Any idea of when the next one could be?

    Nokia were excellent hosts as ever. Some problems tonight with background noise making it quite hard to hear some of the presentations - people chatting at the back, catering rattling around - and no microphones. Quality of the presentations was excellent (although not much value for me personally as a game dev). It'll be interesting to hear a version of Mike's presentation after April ;-)

    I loved the others, but today should be only Mike. He has so much to teach.

    Sorry can't make it now.

    I battled the floods, tube strikes, and train line closures with success, but the car steering decided to play up this morning so unable to make it. Will try for next month though!

    It's that Lawyer bloke again! Looking forward to seeing you all later!

    Planned strike action by the RMT and TSSA has now been suspended. Services will operate as normal.

    Just an FYI for everyone, it looks like the second round of industrial action on the tube will be taking place this week. This means that your journey, if coming via the underground, may be affected. Hopefully people will still be able to make it. Maybe just allow longer for your journey.

      If the strike goes ahead, which seems inevitable now, then I won't be coming along after all - I won't be commuting into London :-( Shame as I was looking forward to heading back to WPUG. Better luck next time!

      Strike's off :)

    Nothing is actually going to stop me from getting to the event, as this is a great way to get someone to help out with my projects that are on the stop already.

    I will simply take the Overground train to Queen's Park and then find my way from there. The closer the better.

    Unfortunately due to a diary clash I can't make it now. Looking forward to attending the next event
