  • Windows 10, UWP and DeviceFamily-Specific Resource Dictionaries

    A small thing for a short post – as you no doubt know by now, with Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform you can perhaps; write a specific app for a device family (e.g. mobile, desktop, team, xbox, etc). write apps that span device families, maybe even all of them. for the latter, there’s probably going to come a point where you need to adapt

  • Windows 10 IoT Core–More Baby Steps with AllJoyn

    Following up on my previous post , I thought it would be ‘good’ to experiment with how I could differentiate between multiple running instances of my amazing ‘lightbulb’ service because it doesn’t seem unreasonable that I might have more than one instance of this service on my network or, even, different implementations of the service. Initially, I

  • Windows 10 IoT Core–Network Enabling the Blinking LED Demo with AllJoyn

    Following my previous post about taking a Raspberry PI 2 and running Windows IoT Core on it in order to build out an app that allowed a user to make an LED flash by pressing a switch, I wondered what it would take to make this "more useful" by offering it as a service on my local network such that the light could be controlled remotely. In

  • Windows 10 and UWP Apps–Experiments with Multiple Windows

    Windows. Windows. Windows. One of the running jokes around Windows 8.0 was that modern applications from the Store didn’t run in Windows but, instead, were full-screen immersive experiences with the exception of ‘snapped view’ and ‘filled view’. That changed with Windows 8.1 where there was more flexibility around how Windowing worked for applications

  • Windows 10 IoT Core, UWP and Raspberry Pi 2–The Switched Blinking Light Demo

    I thought that I’d written some of this up before but it looks like I must have dreamt it because I can’t find the blog post that I thought I’d written and so I’ll start from scratch. I’ve had a Raspberry PI V2 for a little while now. I bought it from RS Online; and I also bought a little case for it as well; and that was enough for me to follow the

  • Windows 10 - Universal Windows Apps and Background Work

    One of the sessions that I delivered at TechDays in Holland; was around doing background work in Windows 10 Universal Windows Apps. I’m of the view that background work is at least as important as the work that an app can do in the foreground and so this is a topic that’s close to me and one that I’ve spoken about on the platform prior to Windows 10

  • Windows 10–Simple Universal Windows Platform Demo App

    I’ve been out and about on my travels a little in the last few weeks and so haven’t published much here. I’d been talking at the fantastic Techorama in Belgium; and also at TechDays over in the Netherlands where I had a great time; and in both cases I gave sessions about the Windows 10 Universal Apps Platform and in both cases I made some use a small

  • Azure Event Hubs from WinRT/UWP Apps

    Just a small thing that caught me out the other day. I wanted to send some simple data from a Windows 10 UWP app to an event hub in Azure. There’s a great guide to getting started with event hubs here; Getting Started with Event Hubs which worked really well for me up until the section ‘Send messages to Event Hubs’ which has a step 3 which asks you

  • Windows 10 Technical Preview 10074: Getting Push Notifications to Your UWP App

    I’m doing work with the Windows 10 Technical Preview and learning a few things that I’d really like to write down but I’m a bit short for time at the moment so I’ve a number of topics that I’ll need to return to in the future. However…I spent some time today just trying to get a simple push notification to my Windows 10 UWP app running on build 10074
