Session 4 of the WinRT Development Class – Async/Await, WinRT API, and Security

Thank you all for attending Session 4 of our WinRT Development Course. It was great to see you all understand, embrace and use the new WinRT API! J

Session Resources:

  • Source code of the project I used to demonstrate the difference between synchronous and asynchronous code execution
  • Source code of the project we developed together. This application allows to take a picture from an attached webcam, save it in the Pictures Library and create diary entries.
  • Presentation.pptx: The slide deck
  • Session Recording
  • Sample implementation of the homework (please try to solve it on your own first!)

Please don’t forget about Danny’s upcoming session on Monday – Jan 28th! I will see you all again on February 4th!
