In this first session, Jon Noble, Ben Lee and Andrew Westgarth will cover the key points from the above upcoming product releases. They break their devices so you don't have to! :)

Session 2: Universal app per day to help prepare way for Windows 10

Peter Bull is a local developer living in Gateshead and has worked on a variety of development projects from an online second-hand book store to his own Windows Phone apps, one of which got over a quarter of a million downloads. This month he’s releasing a Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 Universal Application Tutorial each day, in this presentation he’ll cover how writing universal apps now (for Windows 8.1 / Phone 8.1) will bring you a step closer to being ready for Windows 10. Now that the promise of truly universal apps is about to be delivered Peter learned a lot from the process with Windows 8 and will share his knowledge with the group.
