Session : Getting Started Developing Universal Windows Platform (UWP) Apps at Microsoft Imagine Windows 10 Game Jam, Sri Lanka

Yesterday delivered a two hour session titled “Getting Started Developing Universal Windows Platform (UWP) Apps” at “Microsoft Imagine Windows 10 Game Jam, Sri Lanka”.

Started off with the session giving an introduction to what’s new for developers in Microsoft developer ecosystem. Then after explaining Universal Windows Platform, Universal Device Family, Child Device Families and how their versioning works, demoed the “Hello World” UWP app. After that talked about Extension SDKs and how we isolate device specific code using Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ApiInformation static class.

Winded up the session demoing two new XAML controls which was introduced with Windows 10 which are SplitView and RelativePanel.


Happy Coding.
