In the push to retire Windows XP, application compatibility was all about "getting it over the line," particularly for those who were trying to finish up before the end of support this past April. Now, in a post-XP world, things are changing faster—are your tools, techniques, and processes able to keep up? Do you even want to? And are you able to take full advantage of your platform? Join "The App Compat Guy" for a review of the current state of the art and the secrets of customers who have been able to break the chains and become agile again.
Mobile continues to expand and evolve at a rapid pace. Users expect great native experiences in the palm of their hands on each and every platform. A major hurdle for developers today is that each platform has its own programming language and tools to learn and maintain. Even if you tackle the burden of learning Objective-C and Java you will still have to manage multiple code bases, which can be a nightmare for any development team large or small. It doesn't have to be this way as you can create Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and Windows Store apps leveraging the .NET framework and everything you love about C#.
Moderne Anwendungen und Services werden heute in viel kürzeren Zyklen als je zuvor entwickelt. Teams experimentieren und adaptieren neue Praktiken, mit dem Ziel die Arbeitsabläufe auf kürzere Zyklen zu optimieren. Transparenz der Prioritäten auch bei teamübergreifenden Projekten ist hierbei essentiell. Ich gleichem Maß haben sich die Anforderungen an eine ALM-Plattform entsprechend weiterentwickelt. Visual Studio ALM bietet mit dem Team Foundation Server oder dem Cloud Service Visual Studio Online hier die ideale Plattform für jedes Team. Der Vortrag fokussiert das Backlog Management, den Kanban Support, Work Item Management und Monitoring via Reporting.
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.
