Windows 10 - A Universal Windows Platform?
Windows 10 runs on a broader set of devices than ever before. From the ARM-A7 based Raspberry PI 2 all the way to an XBOX One or a HoloLens, it's the same underlying core Windows operating system on all devices. The power of that operating system is surfaced to developers by the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), also available on all of the Windows devices. By building on the UWP a developer can choose to write and deploy binary code that will run on all Windows devices or they can use the flexibility of the platform to specialise their code for a particular family of devices. In this session, we'll introduce Windows 10, the ideas of 'One Core OS', 'One Platform' and 'One Store' and we'll use Visual Studio and .NET code to illustrate how the UWP works across devices.
