Logitech Performance MX Laser Wireless Mouse & Logitech MK345

I’m selling my old Logitech Performance MX as well as an unused mouse and keyboard combination, the MK345, which currently retails for £24.99 at Currys/PC World.

Bought the MK345 over Christmas with the aim of using it but after opening it out I realised it doesn’t meet my needs as a keyboard. Unused and still has the plastic covering the keyboard. Mouse hasn’t been used at all.

The MX Wireless mouse is in good condition overall with only one or two signs of wear and tear. I’ve owned it…

New Year, New Dev: Developing your idea into a UWP app

In the last post, we introduced you to a video series from Bob Tabor that teaches the fundamentals of C#. In this post, you’ll learn how to put those new (or re-sharpened) C# skills to use as we explore UWP (Universal Windows Platform) development in the Windows 10 Development for Absolute Beginners course from Bob Tabor. With little or no prior experience with XAML (pronounced “Zammal”), you’ll learn how to use XAML and C# to create amazing Windows 10 UWP applications, get those apps ready for publishing and see them run on UWP devices ranging from Xbox One and PC, to mobile and even Raspberry Pi.

Even if you’re an experienced UWP developer, just like in the last post, you may find that there are areas you’d like to brush up on. You can jump to any of the course’s 80 videos and also explore the companion sample code on GitHub.

Exploring the Course

The Ultimate Beginner Series course has two conceptual parts. In the first half, Bob Tabor explains the concepts, patterns and features of a UWP application. In the second half, you will build out four fleshed-out demo applications. From “File > New” to submitting your app to the Windows Store, these samples will get you ready to build and publish your first (or next) app!

First Half

Let’s take a high-level look at just some of the topics you’ll see in the front half of the course (to see the full list visit the course site).

  • Videos 17: Introduction to both XAML and what UWP (Universal Windows Application) is
  • Videos 818: Learn how to use different XAML Layouts
  • Videos 1924: App Navigation
  • Videos 2836: XAML Styling
  • Videos 3739: VisualStateManager and AdaptiveTriggers
  • Videos 4042: DataBinding, ObservableCollections and DataTemplates

There’s a lot there and there is even more to see, including lesson cheat-sheets, challenges and other useful material for learning and future reference.

Second Half

Now, let’s take a look at the four big samples that you’ll build as you move into the second part of the course. These videos will bring you through all the aspects of building, testing and publishing a UWP app.

  • SoundBoard (videos 4956)
    • Page Layout, creating models and data binding
    • Playing media with MediaElement
    • Implementing drag and drop
    • Working with app assets (iconography) and submitting to the Windows Store
  • Weather (videos 5762)
    • Working with a weather API
    • Using GPS and location APIs
    • Testing location in a Windows 10 Mobile emulator
    • Updating live tiles
  • Album Cover Match Game (videos 6370)
    • Access and use the device’s folder and file system
    • Layout, databinding and game setup/logic
    • Handling user input and persisting progress
    • Monetization with ads and In App Purchase
  • Hero Explorer (videos 7179)
    • Accessing a Web API
    • Databinding the object graph from the Web API results
    • Displaying that data in an adaptive layout

Make it through everything? Congrats, you are now ready to begin (or continue) your journey into the world of Windows 10 UWP development. This is not the end of great resources, there are many more available to you as you continue on your journey as a UWP developer (see resources section below). We look forward to seeing the wonderful UWP creations you bring to the Windows Store in 2017!

LGA 1155 MicroATX motherboard

I’ve just bought some new parts for my PC including a Intel i5 3570k which i never thought about overclocking before i bought it but now i have, i’ve decided i’d give it a go as its a kind of a waste not to and my motherboard doesn’t support OC’ing lol

So i’m after any Z77, Z68 or P67 chipset motherboard thats LGA1155 socket and is in a Micro ATX form factor.

It’s a long shot i know but any of these are the ones below i would take and there are probably…
