Windows Phone 8 is built on the same shared core as Windows 8, and this means that developers have the opportunity to deliver applications to both, leveraging much of the same knowledge, tools, code, and assets. In this session, we'll walk through the best practices on how to maximize your code reuse in building applications that target both Windows Phone and Windows 8

For more information, check out this course on Microsoft Virtual Academy:

  • Great session on xaml / c# approach, but was expecting more coverage of html/js approach too. For instance, if I'm building more than just wp8/win8 and on iOS & android where xaml approach not relevant for cross platform.

    Any resources would be useful.

  • Hi folks,

     Thanks for watching/attending the session. I hope it was helpful. A few updates for you:

    Slides: I am chasing this issue. Hopefully that will be remedied shortly and the slides will be made available.

    API Quickstart Poster: I believe this is the API compatibility chart to which you are referring. I am told that a PDF version will be made publicly available this week.

    Code: We are going to ship the code as a sample on Code Gallery. We hope to make it available in the next few days, but it might be next week by the time we get it uploaded. Thanks for your patience. You can follow me @AndrewJByrne and I will announce updates through twitter too.

    The MSDN doc set that details the sharing techniques outlined in this talk is available at http://aka.ms/sharecode



  • Windows Phone API QuickStart Poster is now available in PDF format


  • The code for the app shown in this session is now live on MSDN Code Gallery.


    Thanks for your patience, and happy coding!

  • Can you share code...?
