Presented by: Danny Warren & Kevin Stumpf

Running Time: 56 min

Session 2 Materials

While in Windows 8’s predecessors your app could only be running or not running, in WinRT there are now a plethora of application states. Danny will walk you through the many new application states: launching, activating, suspending and terminating. He’ll teach you how to handle those states without losing any of your user’s precious data. In addition he will show you how to use the new navigation model.

Kevin will close this session by teaching your how to leverage one of WinRT’s coolest and most talked about features: Live Tiles.
