Event Breakdown
Andy Wigley Building Cross-Platform Apps for Windows Phone and Windows 8
Windows Phone 8 boasts a shared OS core with ‘big’ Windows, both using the same kernel and sharing many other low-level OS components. At the developer level however, the need for backwards compatibility with Windows Phone 7 and the later creation of the Windows 8 Store Apps development model means that while there are many similarities, there are also many differences that you have to account for.
With careful application of the correct programming patterns, taking advantage of portable class libraries, and utilising code sharing techniques, between 50 – 75% code re-use can be achieved. In this session, I will show you how.
