In this episode, Robert is joined by Daniel Jacobson, who shows how he built a Windows 10 IOT app that can be used by a coffee shop to know when customers enter and exit the shop. With that data, the shop can monitor traffic flow and figure out things like what days and times are the most, and least busy. The app uses a Raspberry Pi, sensors and Azure and is a great example of the types of Universal Windows Apps you can build. Daniel also offers a preview of some of the XAML tooling enhancements coming in the next version of Visual Studio [34:50].

    Thank you Robert Green for pointing out that the Frame Rate Counter should not be displayed unless requested! The process of Start => New Project => edit App.xaml.cs has become tedious.

    @jerocis: good news, we'll be changing the default behavior of the templates in the next release of Visual Studio. For your existing projects you will still have to turn off the frame rate counter, but when you install the next VS, new projects will not have it on by default.
