The New Windows Phone Application Model

Sign in to queue

Description

The new release of Windows Phone dramatically expands the ways in which developers can build applications and games, by adding several new programming models, and also expanding the application model to support a broader set of developer scenarios. Andrew will explore these in depth and give you the information you need to get started building applications that leverage these features today.

    Hi Andrew,

     great presentation.  I definitely would love to migrate to 8.1 but it seems your team does not access web services or WCF.As you mentioned there are over 400,000 apps in the store, many of which use web services.  Is the expectation that we all go and rebuild our apps?  If so what is the rationale for such a drastic change and why not speak on it and provide examples as opposed to having us figure something like this out ourselves.

    @Moemeka:you can call web services from phone apps.  Lots of apps already do.  What can't you do?

    I'm curious if a scenario like turning on and off bluetooh or wifi on a schedule is something that would be possible via a trigger schedule in the new os or even the older ones?

    Audio out of sync with video. A tad bit annoying.

    @Adam Wright:not at the moment although that is a great idea.  I'll put it on the list for VNext.

    I'm trying to build a universal app, mostly because the Bluetooth LE support isn't there for the phone yet, otherwise I'd be doing just the phone. But... it seems there isn't any support for Data Annotations in WP8.1. There is in Win8.1, just not the phone. Is this something that will be added and, if so, can you talk about when?

    Thanks.
