It looks like the Microsoft Developer Team has begun using a weekly summary to highlight all of the development news the team shares on their Build Apps for Windows website and on social media.
The new resource laced weekly summary has now appeared over the last two weeks so it may be starting to develop a pattern and we will see if that continues tomorrow with a third edition.
In the mean time, here are some of the highlights in these last two editions.
- The UWP Community Toolkit Update Version 1.1 - This toolkit contains information about services, controls, and animations you can use in your Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps. It also includes documentation and sample apps to help you in your development efforts.
Introducing the Windows Device Portal Wrapper - This is a mini web server that is part of every Windows device and it can be used for diagnostics when you are in Developer Mode on that unit.
- C++/WinRT Available on GitHub
Cross device experiences and Project Rome - Reality of today is everyone is on multiple devices with various screensizes so your app needs to target these different form factors.
Building Augmented Reality Apps in five Steps - Augmented Reality allows you to enhance your environment but remain connected visually. This tutorial shows you how to build an AR app for Windows 10.
IoT on Xbox One: Best for You Sample Fitness App - Using this sample app you will learn how to build an Xbox One app that takes advantage of an IoT device and Microsoft's IoT services.
