There are more than ever before: HTTP networking APIs, NFC and Bluetooth including ‘tap to connect’ with Windows 8 slates, WCF and OData services, are just the tip of the iceberg. See how to program with the new DataSense feature. Store data in Sky Drive. Share state between Windows Phone 8 app and the Windows 8 version of your app. See some real practical demos, such as how to connect the Windows Phone 8 emulator to services running on your development PC, how to implement compression with HTTP networking and how you can handle credentials when accessing services that require user authentication.
