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.
