June 2013 Meetup!!


The June 2013 Meetup of the The Windows Developer User Group is scheduled for June 17th from 6PM to 8PM @ TechColumbus. Please see details below & kindly RSVP.

Sharing Code between Windows 8 & Windows Phone!

Are you plotting your next Windows 8 or Windows Phone App? Do you already have an App in one platform and looking to port it over to the other with code sharing? If so, this session is for you! Join us as Jeff Blankenburg provides a tour of his King Poker app for Windows Phone and Windows 8.  Using C# and XAML, he was able to encapsulate most of the business logic of the app into a Portable Class Library, allowing for a simple UI layer for each of the two versions.  This will be a code-heavy presentation, focused on XAML-based apps and monetization strategies. Abstract out our core logic for re-usability, leverage the cloud and make some dimes. This session will be your real-world walk through of two successful Windows 8 & Windows Phone Apps and how to share code between the two. You don’t want to miss it!
