Enabling existing .NET (and other Win32) desktop applications to become part of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) ecosystem is a key part of the Windows 10 vision. This session will cover in detail the technologies that will enable you to convert your desktop application to a UWP app. We'll demonstrate how to take advantage of UWP features to further enhance your .NET desktop apps.
With the release of Windows 10, there is a lot of focus on its use within the enterprise on desktops, laptops, tablets and phones, but did you know that Windows 10 also introduced support for low-cost embedded platforms such as the Raspberry Pi 2? Not only did Microsoft build Windows IoT to target these sub-$50 embedded platforms, they also introduced high level APIs to integrate with even smaller analogue circuits connected locally via USB, or remotely via Bluetooth, LAN or even WiFi. In this session you'll learn about Windows IoT and how it can help you rapidly prototype and deploy embedded solutions and easily integrate analogue sensors and actuators which might normally require complex driver development.
