What's new in Windows 10 Universal?

Date: 31 Jan 2017
Location: Baden, Switzerland
Event name: Microsoft TechDays Switzerland
Duration: 50 minutes


Windows 10 was released to the public in July 2015 and since then has seen a number of evolutions such as the Anniversary update in 2016 and the upcoming Creators update in 2017. Now that Windows is distributed as a service, Microsoft keeps adding new features gradually, always with the same basis. For us developers, it means that we don't have to always learn everything from scratch anymore, but we can build on a solid foundation. In this session, Laurent Bugnion, a Microsoft Windows Developer MVP and Microsoft Regional Director will introduce you to some of the most exciting new features of Windows 10 and show you what you can expect in the next versions such as beautiful new animations and effects, tooling improvements, 3D content across the board and the latest in the bridge technologies allowing you to port existing classic applications from Win32, Win64, WPF, and even iOS. You will leave this session with a better understanding of Microsoft's strategy regarding Window 10 and the Universal Windows platform.
