Course Description

Overview:

Microsoft Windows 10 has merged the software platforms for Windows applications into a single Universal Windows Platform (UWP) that makes it relatively straightforward to develop one app that runs on phones, tablets, computers, and other devices. Microsoft has provided various tools and programming languages to support development in this platform, giving the developer the ability to use tools and techniques that they are most comfortable with. With Visual Studio (even with the free Community edition), the developer can choose to program Windows applications using a variety of languages. This course introduces students to Windows 10 application development using C# and XAML. You can take this course as part of your preparation for a certification exam such as MCSD: Universal Windows Platform certification.

Course Objectives:

In this course, you will develop Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform applications using C# and XAML.

You will:

  • Use Visual Studio to create and run a Universal Windows Platform application
  • Design a Windows application based on requirements, operating system constraints, and best practices
  • Create a user interface layout through XAML, including styles, themes, and adaptive layout features
  • Write C# code to control the presentation logic of a XAML-based user interface, and to bind user interface components to data
  • Lay out and program a multiple-page application with a navigation menu, command bars, and Back button navigation
  • Manage user interface states through Visual State Groups and provide alternate layouts and resources for different devices and displays
  • Store, deserialize, and retrieve data in local files, and pass data among application pages
  • Load and present web data within an application, and work in cooperation with an external web browser
  • Load and present web data in a WebView control, and use JavaScript to communicate between the app and content in the Web View
  • Create graphics at runtime, and add animation effects to user interface components
  • Integrate with other apps and services, providing features such as Share, Print, Settings, Mapping, and Navigation.
  • Identify strategies for improving the security of Windows apps, and use security-related features such as file pickers, file encryption, and the password box.
  • Use Visual Studio tools to brand an application and prepare it for release to end users

Target Student:

The target student for this course is an experienced programmer who is new to application development for the Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform using C# and XAML in Visual Studio. The target student has experience developing applications using object-oriented programming languages and tools, but not necessarily any experience using the languages and tools specific to the Windows 10 development environment.

Prerequisites:

Object-oriented programming experience in at least one programming language such as Java, Swift, Objective-C, or C++ is essential to your success. Your familiarity with object-oriented programming should include understanding of concepts such as classes, methods, properties, constructors, and instantiation.

Course-specific Technical Requirements

  • Virtualization Technology (may have a different label depending on motherboard manufacturer)
  • Hardware Enforced Data Execution Prevention
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 25 GB available hard disk space
  • Keyboard and mouse (or other pointing device)
  • DirectX 9-capable video card that runs at 1024 x 768 or higher display resolution, and compatible display monitor
  • Network cards and cabling for local network access
  • Internet access (contact your local network administrator)
  • Printer or an installed printer driver
  • Projection system to display the instructor's computer screen

Software
