Windows Desktop Developer Twitch Workshop (March 14, 2019)



Today we’d like to announce an upcoming free live streaming workshop on March 14th, 2019 focused on Windows Desktop development for .NET applications using frameworks such as WPF, WinForms and UWP.

The day will be split into three themes:

  • Productivity: Productivity for existing developers focused on Visual Studio XAML tooling and design pattern framework libraries
  • Desktop Apps of Tomorrow: Looking forward to how you can get started exploring the latest technology for your desktop application such as .NET Core 3, XAML Islands, MSIX and Windows 10 APIs
  • Extending Your Skills: Reusing skills with Xamarin.Forms for mobile apps and DevOps for desktop applications

All sessions will be streaming live and will be on hour long, and we’ll be taking your questions live through Twitch chat!
