Thanks for attending September’s Windows Community Standup

Thanks everyone for attending and asking some fantastic questions. We strive to answer all questions and be transparent with both what we are building and why we are building them. Kevin’s next Windows Community Standup will be on October 10th, 2017 at Windows Developer Day!
Kevin showed off how .NET Standard 2.0 works in a Universal Windows Platform Application by showing SqlClient code being used directly from a classic WinForm application, dragging those files into the UWP app’s code base and just running the application!
Kevin also showed off some of the advances inside Windows Ink that developers can take advantage of today. Shape recognition and much more!

Windows Community Standup on September 14th, 2017

Kevin Gallo will be hosting Windows Community Standup on Channel 9 with Seth Juarez again on September 14th, 2017 at 10:30am PST! We’ll be streaming live and answering questions afterwards.
A few of the topics Kevin and Seth will be discussing are the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update SDK, what we’ll have at the Microsoft Ignite conference, modernizing your application and some exciting programming demos.
We learned a lot from our first Windows community standup and will hold monthly Windows community standups to provide additional transparency on what we are building out, and clarity on why we are building them. These stand ups may be tied to an event like Microsoft Build or on Channel 9. We’ll be testing different streaming technologies and interaction models to see what works best. We would love feedback on this as well.
Once again, we can’t wait to see you at 10:30am PST on September 14th, 2017 over at https://channel9.msdn.com.
