Presentation: Introduction to Windows 8.1 App Development

A huge thanks to the crowd at the San Diego .NET Developers Group! You guys were an awesome crowd. Congrats on the 20 year anniversary of the group as well. It’s great to know we have a deep culture of helping and teaching each other in the area. Keep it up!

For those that couldn’t make it we discussed how to handle Page Navigation and App Lifecycle for the first hour then moved into Location Services for the last 30min. Theses are some critical topics for Windows 8.1 App Development that I think a lot of people could use some help with. I only say that because many apps I use behave badly. I hope you find the recording of the session useful. Please leave some comments on what you think!

Again, thanks a bunch! And we’ll catch you next time!

DevLink – Crawl, Walk, Talk: Windows Phone 8 App Lifecycle and Speech API

Huge thanks to all who attended my session. It was a blast! I hope you found it helpful and informative. You may find my Presentation Deck, Code, and a recording of the session below. Feel free to ask me any questions or give me any feedback you’d like in the comments below.

Session Description

Many Windows Phone apps in the store are good, but they could be great if they understood the very basics of app Lifecycle management. App users should never know they left the app due to app behavior. We’ll discuss and learn how to effectively and efficiently suspend, tombstone, resume and restore Windows Phone apps. Then we’ll move on to teaching our apps how to respond to Voice Commands. Voice Commands are one of the most helpful features and yet one of the least leveraged features in the Windows Phone platform. We’ll learn where they can help and how they can streamline the user experience.
