This session will be your opportunity to do a live Q&A with the Visual Studio product team that works on the React Native extension as well as TACO (the Tools for Apache Cordova). Joining the team will be two special guests from Exponent, makers of the Exponent Development Environment - a suite of tools to help developers build apps using ReactNative
Parashuram A Program Manager in the Visual Studio team, building developer tools for cross platform mobile application runtimes like React Native and Cordova. He is a core committer in the Apache Cordova project. He also works on open source tools for react and react-native, including projects like an adapter to use Cordova plugins in React Native, and a custom react renderer that uses Web Workers.
Jonathan Carter Program Manager in the Visual Studio team, working on developer services for mobile apps including Visual Studio Team Services, HockeyApp and CodePush.
Brent Vatne Developer at Exponent (exponentjs.com), building a platform to deliver mobile experiences that combine the best of web and native. Brent is a core contributor to React Native, compiler of the React Native Newsletter (reactnative.cc) and an organizer of React.js Conf 2016.

Please join us April 7th, at 10am PDT. See you then!
Did you know that Windows 10 can run on a $35 Raspberry Pi 2 computer? Makers have taken the world by storm, creating countless gadgets and automated systems, connecting everything around them. This session is for makers – neophytes and veterans alike – who want to explore the capabilities of Windows 10 IoT Core to build hacks based on the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), basically attaching electronic sensors and outputs to their Windows 10 apps.
In this session, you'll learn about the tools, how to get started, what hardware you'll need, and how to build your first Windows hardware project on the Raspberry Pi. You'll also explore how you can extend your Windows 10 mobile projects with custom hardware using the Windows Arduino Remote, and how your Arduino projects can leverage Windows hardware as affordable virtual shields. Take your maker projects to the next level, and come learn valuable skills to prepare and extend your developer skills for the Internet of Things (IoT).
You will learn:
About the many offerings from Microsoft for makers & IoT including Windows 10 IoT Core, Arduino Remote and Virtual Shields for Arduino
How to build a simple electronic project with LEDs and user input with a Raspberry Pi, Windows 10 IoT Core and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP)
How to connect Arduino gadgets to Windows 10 apps via Arduino Remote and Virtual Shields
We live in a world of heterogeneous devices. In this session we’ll discuss the pros and cons of a number of strategies for producing cross-platform applications. Starting with HTML, moving through hybrid apps up to native apps, Mitch will explain the architectural patterns of each approach and explore the use-cases in which each approach is most appropriate. At the end of this session you’ll be much better equipped to decide on the best strategy for internal, B2B and B2C applications that need to be available to the entire audience, regardless of the device they use.
