Windows Phone 8.1 has brought hundreds of new features, enhancements, and functionality to the Windows Phone platform. In this session we will cover the big ticket items, and why they are significant game changes for mobile application development. And still there will be a lot to cover including: Geofencing, Bluetooth LE, Universal Apps, developer tool updates, HTML apps, Web Authentication Broker, CredentialLocker, background tasks and triggers, new enterprise features, and Cortana.
Serving up content on the Internet is something our web sites do daily. But are we doing this in the fastest way possible? How are users in faraway countries experiencing our apps? Why do we have three webservers serving the same content over and over again? In this session, we'll explore the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network or CDN, a service which makes it easy to serve up blobs, videos and other content from servers close to our users. We'll explore simple file serving as well as some more advanced, dynamic edge caching scenarios.
We've also got powerful debugging capabilities such as Browser Link, and an extensible platform where extension creators can make your experience even better such as what Web Essentials extension brings to our community.
In this session this will be your opportunity to do a live Q&A with the Visual Studio product team that works on these code editors, extensions and debugging experience.
