Windows Phone 8.1 introduces new mechanisms to allow applications to execute while not in the foreground. A converged Triggers and Background Tasks implementation allows tasks to launch on time, location, push, Bluetooth and system events. Learn how new resource policies affect how and when your application runs in the background and how to use these new feature from Windows XAML and Microsoft Silverlight 8.1 applications.
In this session we'll go through some of the things you will need to know when building a real application with ASP.NET Core framework. We'll start off by reviewing the structure of an ASP.NET Core app, how it gets deployed, how to do some common tasks like custom error pages and logging, and then publish the application to Azure cloud.

In this video, we take a tour of what’s new in Visual Studio 2013 for building DirectX apps, including refreshed project templates, samples and feature additions to Graphics Diagnostics.
