Want to learn a bit more about what’s coming in the Windows 10 Creators Update? Microsoft is hosting a free, live web event for developers February 8.
The four-event will include several substantive sessions on new developer tools and APIs, followed by a Q&A with Microsoft VP of Windows Developer Platform Kevin Gallo and others from the Windows 10 engineering team.
Here’s what to expect, from the event announcement:
See what’s new with Windows developer tooling: UWP tooling, Bash, Developer mode, and more.
Learn about the latest XAML advancements and how UWP helps you build Windows apps that are more personal and productive.
Hear the developer story behind the recent announcements of Cortana skills and the new Windows mixed-reality headsets.
There’s also a session on everyone’s favorite topic: how to make your app successful in the Windows Store.
New Year’s Eve weekend is a time to party, but for the geeks among us, it may also be a good opportunity to curl up with some dev training videos.
Enter Microsoft/Xamarin with their on-demand recordings of Xamarin Dev Days sessions. The mobile development training event takes place periodically in cities around the world, and as of this month, you can also participate virtually via Xamarin Dev Days Live on Microsoft’s Channel 9. (Hat tip to Petri’s Paul Thurrott for first pointing this out.)
The five-episode track, which first aired Dec. 14, kicks off with Introduction to Xamarin, Cross-Platform UI with Xamarin.Forms and Cloud First Apps with Azure. The “afternoon” sessions are more hands-on; you can follow along as the instructors walk through building an app.
Log on and get to brainstorming about what you’ll build in 2017.
