Thursday, June 18, 2015, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Introduced in Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1, Universal Windows apps let developers build apps that share a maximum amount of code across a wide range of devices, including smartphones, phablets, tablets, laptops, desktops, hybrids, 2-in-1’s and even servers. Universal apps can be built natively using either HTML+Javascript, or XAML with C#, VB or C++. Windows 10 is the final destination for convergence with “One Windows across all devices”, adapting itself to the device form factor to provide the optimum capabilities and user experience. Windows 10 is available in preview today via the Insiders program. Visual Studio 2015 RC is available for download now. You can start building Universal Windows apps today and get ready for Windows 10.
Join us for an early post-BUILD session as we explore new features for developers in Windows 10, including code sharing, targeting specific devices, Visual Studio tooling, new XAML tools, etc.
