This talk will showcase new capabilities we have added to some of the key networking APIs for Windows apps. We will cover new features added to our JSON, HTTP, Background Transfer and Sockets APIs. These features empower you, the developer, to write apps that send or receive data faster and can efficiently process that data even when your app is not in the foreground. Speakers: Himadri Sarkar, Michael Bishop, Sidharth Nabar.
