Using the new tools included in the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK, it is easier than ever to create apps that share most of their code. Code can be shared using the new shared app template in Visual Studio, as well as by creating Portable Class Libraries. This session walks through the development of a shared app, showing you where code can be shared and where it still makes sense to implement platform-specific features.
Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud platform, providing Platform as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service and Web site hosting. In this video, we will give an overview of Windows Azure, walk through the benefits of developing in the cloud with it and introduce various solutions the platform offers. After watching the video, you will have a good overview of the various ways you can use Windows Azure to leverage the power of the cloud.
Apps should be tested before submission. Every app is unique, so a unique test plan should be created to test the components of each app. When creating the test plan, a few factors should be taken into account: app modules; how those modules interact within the app and in which order they are initialized; and which modules are required for the app to run. Based on this info, the modules should be tested. In this session, Mickey talks about how, through testing, you can ensure the highest quality for your app.
