Make your app look good on every windows device on the planet! Back to talks
One of the many “Holy Grails” of programing is being able have an application work “correctly” on multiple hardware platforms without changing a single line of code. Java promised this(still does) and we know how well that has worked out. With the release of Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), Microsoft has truly thrown it’s hat into the ring. Is it all that is advertised? Can I truly execute the same code base on a XBox, Raspberry Pi, a phone, and a Desktop? Can I really have the same same experience over all of those platforms? Come to my talk and make the decision for yourself. We will talk about how your application can not only execute on all of those platforms, but be able to detect and take advantage of all that the capabilities on whichever platform.
