Windows 8 Metro Connected Apps

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

We dive into the HTTP client stack and learn how to access a cloud service from our Metro app, how to authenticate with a service using the WebAuthenticationBroker, and how to work with syndicated content using the new Syndication and AtomPub APIs. We explore Windows 8 background transfers, and learn how to control them, track them and reconnect to them across Metro lifecycle events from our foreground app. We discuss Windows live tiles and toast notifications, and how they keep our apps alive and connected. And finally we take a serious look at the push notification architecture, and the way push features can light up our app, for example by leveraging tile and toast updates to it. This course assumes basic familiarity with the Windows 8 platform, XAML UIs and the C# async pattern.

Windows 8 Metro Application Data

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

The Windows 8 Metro platform redefines the way apps access and manipulate data. In this course we learn how to work with application data, that is, working data that is created and accessed by your app on a continuous basis. Traditionally, app data has been local, but Metro blurs the distinction between local and remote data by making things such as cloud storage and app-to-app integration an integral part of both the user and developer experiences. This course looks at accessing files, local and remote, as a content source for our apps; it explores app data storage and roaming as well as the settings contract; and it takes an in-depth look at app-to-app sharing through the sharing contract. Before doing so, however, it starts with a fresh look at the UI side of things, including Metro controls and data binding. After watching this course, you should feel comfortable accessing, listing, updating, roaming and sharing data in your metro apps.

Building Windows 8 MVVM XAML Apps

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

Building Windows 8 Modern UI-styled applications presents a whole new arena for building applications. However, patterns that have evolved for building clients with other XAML platforms (WPF, Silverlight, and Windows Phone) apply equally to building Windows 8 XAML clients. The Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern has become the de-facto standard for building loosely coupled, maintainable, testable, pattern-based XAML client applications. This course teaches you the key concepts and application of the MVVM pattern using the WinRT platform to build Windows Store XAML Apps for Windows 8.
