Get FREE training and expert help to build and publish your apps for Windows devices.


Are you finally ready to start developing for mobile devices? Perhaps you're interested in learning what's new in Windows Phone 8.1 and how to build universal apps that can be published in both the Windows and Windows Phone Stores? The Portland Windows Phone Day will help you get your app closer to completion and get that much closer to putting the app in the store. In fact we expect many developers will have their application already uploaded to the store by the end of the day.


While previous events have focused around "learning" to build for Windows and Windows Phone, the focus of this event is geared towards doing the work and helping you "publish" your apps. Whether you’re a first-time developer, or a seasoned pro who wants to take advantage of new features in Windows Phone 8.1, this event is for you.

Internet of Things has become a hot topic in today's tech news. Gartner predicts: "The Internet of Things (IoT), which excludes PCs, tablets and smartphones, will grow to 26 billion units installed in 2020 representing an almost 30-fold increase from 0.9 billion in 2009". IOT will also include embedded sensors, home automation products and wearables, among other "things". Developing software for these devices, big data and the Cloud will provide great opportunities for developers in the years to come. Come to this presentation to see what all the excitement is about, where the opportunities are and how to get started with Internet of Things using cool technologies like the RaspberryPI, Node.js and the Cloud.

6/3/2014 06:00 PM Universal Apps in Windows Phone 8.1

It's been over 18 months since Windows Phone 8 was released and now Windows Phone 8.1 is finally here. However the question still remains, if you weren't previously building for Windows Phone, then why should you care about it now? The first of many answers to this question starts with Universal Apps.

Join me as I walk through building a Universal App for both Windows and Windows Phone. We'll be talking in depth about what they can and can't do, as well as some best practices you should follow. There is lots to talk about and you may have a few questions. Given what time is left, we'll also briefly cover some of the new features such as geofencing, live video editing, and - of course - Cortana. While there won't be enough time to go into depth on each of these, hopefully you will be inspired and walk away with ideas for the apps you can finally build using the tools you love the most!
