Aberdeen Developers are pleased to present a talk by Mike Taulty, on Thursday 27th August 2015 at the Robert Gordon University.
Windows 10 and the Universal Windows App Platform
Windows 10 is a big release for Microsoft. Commodious. Huge. Massive. Colossal. Humongous. ;-)
It’s the end of a journey to unify Windows. It’s the beginning of a journey for developers who want to take advantage of a universal app platform available across all Windows devices.
In this session, we’ll dig into what’s changed in Windows 10 for the Windows app developer. We’ll talk about the Universal App Platform that makes it possible to build code that runs on all Windows devices and about the Extension platforms for code that targets specific device families.
We’ll stay in Visual Studio as much as is possible and we’ll lean towards C# and XAML.
Mike Taulty works in the Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft in the UK where he has spent the past few years helping developers understand and get the best from the Microsoft platform. Prior to this, Mike spent 3 years with Microsoft Consulting Services as a consultant on developer technologies.
Before joining Microsoft, Mike spent the previous 9 years working as a software developer for a number of enterprises, consultancies and software vendors working with a variety of operating system, client, communication and server technologies. You can find more of a complete career history over on LinkedIn.
Mike holds a BSc Hons (1st Class) in Computer Science from the University of Leeds.
