Windows Store apps are stateful, meaning that the user receives them with meaningful content already in place, even on first launch, across sessions, and across devices. Taking the point of view of the state itself, this session explores where that state lives, the different ways it's created and modified, and how it fulfills its purpose of supporting stateful apps. Topics include: local and roaming app data; file I/O and file-access cache; setting UI, background tasks for managing state; state versioning; the Credential Locker; handling transient session state across Process Lifetime Management (PLM) events; and app data vs. user data.
Have you ever needed to take control of your Windows Azure services but found some of the higher-level tooling just didn't quite fit your needs? While there are many ways to manage your Windows Azure services (PowerShell, Visual Studio, web portal, etc.), it is the Windows Azure Service Management API that ultimately affords us the greatest power and flexibility. By using this API we can automate many common or necessary tasks – potentially creating our own custom tools or processes. In this session we'll see how to get started with the Service Management API, explore features such as working with storage accounts, creating and scaling Cloud Services, and working with Virtual Machines.
