"Windows 10 for Developers" by Jerry Nixon
Windows 10 is upon us. In this introduction to Windows 10 for developers, we discuss changes in lifecycle, background tasks, tiles, toast, and the enhancements to XAML and the tooling. We will also review some new aspects of C# and improvements around .NET Native.
