This is a HARDCORE session designed to stretch, challenge, and entertain even an expert in the field. Windows debugging and Windows internals is something you can never really master, and everyone has new techniques. We showcase the latest innovations and approaches in troubleshooting for Windows, diving deep under the covers of Windows and how it's changing for 8.1. Our goal is to give even experts in the field new techniques—even if you are a hardened veteran—to help you solve problems more quickly and better understand how Windows works.
Take a lightning tour of the many connectivity options for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 Store Apps. There are more than ever before: HTTP networking APIs, NFC and Bluetooth including ‘tap to connect’ and WebApi REST services are just the tip of the iceberg. See how to build apps that work with DataSense 2.0. Store settings and data in Microsoft OneDrive. Share state between a Windows Phone 8.1 app and the Windows 8.1 version of your app. See some practical demos, such as how to implement compression with HTTP networking and how you can handle credentials when accessing services that require user authentication. We’ll also take a quick look at building a mobile back end with Microsoft Azure Mobile Services and connecting with it from your app.
