Windows Store apps are stateful, meaning that the user receives them with meaningful content already in place, even on first launch, across sessions, and across devices. Taking the point of view of the state itself, this session explores where that state lives, the different ways it's created and modified, and how it fulfills its purpose of supporting stateful apps. Topics include: local and roaming app data; file I/O and file-access cache; setting UI, background tasks for managing state; state versioning; the Credential Locker; handling transient session state across Process Lifetime Management (PLM) events; and app data vs. user data.
