Windows app packaging and deployment just got even better. Come learn how! In this session, learn about the packaging, deployment, and storage features available in Windows 8.1 Update for Desktop and Phone. You’ll leave with an understanding of what these features mean for your Windows Phone SilverLight apps and Windows XAML Windows Store and how to leverage them, and how they benefit your end-users.
This talk will showcase new capabilities we have added to some of the key networking APIs for Windows apps. We will cover new features added to our JSON, HTTP, Background Transfer and Sockets APIs. These features empower you, the developer, to write apps that send or receive data faster and can efficiently process that data even when your app is not in the foreground. Speakers: Himadri Sarkar, Michael Bishop, Sidharth Nabar.
