Play Working with devices; integrating into peripherals for Windows 8 and Windows Phone.
Mobile app development is fun, we build compelling experiences that allow people to achieve more, have fun, and stay engage whilst on the move. To date however many of the apps we build have been confined to the screen in front of you, and the cloud. So how could we make our apps even more fun, and achieving more? Simple; leverage the devices that are around us, our internet of things, and bring them back in to our app. With the latest changes to WinRT we now have comprehensive support for Bluetooth, proximity, NFC, sockets, and a whole lot of integration technologies that allow us to connect to the devices around us and use them in the immersive experiences we are creating. This session will deep dive into working with these technologies, and practically assess how we can talk to our Smart TV, the watch on our write; and maybe just for fun the drone flying above us.
