Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Lars Klint, and welcome to my course, Building a Universal Windows App in 3 Hours. I'm a freelance solution architect at larsklint. com, Microsoft MVP, speaker, and expert in Australian outback internet. Yes, really! I've been building software systems from tiny websites to gargantuan telecommunication systems for the past 20 years. In this course, we're going to build an entire app for the universal Windows platform, and even publish it. The app will be cross-platform and run on over 400 million devices. Learn to use features of Windows AppStudio to build powerful universal apps with ease. Create completely personalized sections that showcase your company or business as a fully native universal app that can run on any Windows 10 device. How about personalizing the app to include more advanced features. You'll learn to export the AppStudio project into Visual Studio to continue expanding and refining it. We'll also cover the common model view ViewModel architecture for building mobile apps to make sure you create lean and testable software. But that isn't all. By the end of the course you'll have published the app to the wild and started getting real world users using it. To complete the course, all you need is a Microsoft account and the free community edition of Visual Studio 2015. By the end of the course, you will have an understanding of what universal apps are and how they are put together, as well as having built your very own. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to build universal apps with the Building a Universal Windows App in 3 Hours course at Pluralsight.
