Along with global launch of Windows 10 build 10240 (RTM)
, Microsoft opened the path for the developers to build and publish apps for Windows 10. The Software Development Kit (SDK) is available for download. This SDK for Windows 10 contains headers, libraries and tools you can use to build apps. In this post, sharing/bookmarking the link to download the SDK Tools for Windows 10 along with the known issues currently there in this build.
If you didn’t yet upgraded to the Windows 10 build, you can follow this post
to download the ISO image or
upgrade directly from Windows 7 or Windows 8.x systems. You also need Visual Studio 2015 to develop apps for Windows 10. You can download Visual Studio 2015
(ISO + Web Installer are included) from Microsoft by visiting the post. You can also go for a Community Edition of the Visual Studio 2015, which is free for individual developers, open source development, academic research, education and small professional teams to build cross-platform mobile apps for Windows, iOS and Android. You can download it from here: Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition
(Free). Please note that, this SDK also supports...(Read whole news on source site)
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip up to Brisbane. I got to see some friends, saw my sister and presented PhantomJS with SharePoint and SharePoint Online.
The response was tremendous, those that came to my session seems really interested and gave me more ideas for future discussions. The presentation and demo are herehttp://johnliu.net/s/Introducing-PhantomJS.pptxhttp://johnliu.net/s/demo-files.zip

Microsoft's developer division has been gearing up for this day, as it now officially opens up the Windows 10 Store and announces a handful of Windows 10 resources that developers can deploy in live production environments.
Content management systems (CMSs) provide a separation between content and code. This allows, among other things, non-programmers to create and maintain website content. This post demonstrates how the open source .NET CMS Umbraco
can be used to create a complex website while maintaining a clean code base.
CMSs solve a common problem therefore there are hundreds of different ones to choose from. Having such a large selection is both a blessing and a curse; by what criteria do you choose?
When CMSs are compared, it is often by feature set. This is a reasonable way to make a decision, but up
to a point. When choosing a CMS (or any framework), don’t only consider what you think you will need when you start the project - think about what will be important 6 months into the project. Will you care if response times are 150ms instead of 100ms? Will you care if the CMS supported a shopping cart out of the box so you didn’t have to spend a week implementing it? Probably not. But something that will affect you for the lifetime of the project is the quality and complexity of the code base.
Code quality will vary depending on...(Read whole news on source site)
Today is an exciting day for Windows users and developers alike with the launch of Windows 10
. For developers, Windows 10 represents the culmination of our platform convergence journey with Windows running on a single, unified Windows core. This convergence enables one app targeting the Universal Windows Platform to run on every Windows device – on the phone in your pocket, the tablet or laptop in your bag, the PC on your desk, and the Xbox console in your living room. And that’s not even mentioning all the new devices being added to the Windows family, including the

, and IoT devices like the Raspberry Pi 2
. All these Windows devices will access one unified Store for app acquisition, distribution and updates.
Today, I’m excited to announce that along with the RTM of Windows 10, you can now build apps for the Universal Windows Platform with Visual Studio 2015. The Windows Dev Center
is also now open and accepting submissions of your Universal Windows apps.
Since the first preview of these tools in March
, we have made significant updates to many parts of Visual Studio to make it easy to build apps for the...(Read whole news on source site)
devices—desktop, phone, tablet, IoT devices, and eventually HoloLens, Xbox, Surface Hub, and more. Your Cordova apps targeting Windows 10 can smoothly transition between usage modes, such as from desktop to tablet when the user removes the keyboard. They can also take advantage of all the new features of Windows 10, such as Cortana integration.
NuGet is a free, open source package management system for .NET platform, which helps in easy dependency management. Using NuGet very easy for project owners to build and define package dependencies which will be included in the package during the packaging process and later publish this to the repository for usage by external users.
Users can later install the package by searching in the NuGet source repository which will automatically download and install the dependencies as well. You can use the NuGet command line utility to create packages from a specification file and later publish them to the repository
whenever needed. If you want to automate the process of package creation and publishing from a TFS build process, you can make use of custom PowerShell scripts that can be invoked as part of the build process. The Team Foundation Build template (TfvcTemplate.12.xaml) provides the capability to extend the build process by using PowerShell scripts at stages like Pre build and Post build.
You can use the default template to run PowerShell and batch (.bat) scripts before and after you compile your code, and before and after your run your tests. During the script execution you can make use...(Read whole news on source site)
