Windows 10 is the latest operation system which is a part of the Windows NT family of OS. Microsoft introduced the Universal Apps, most commonly known as Universal Windows Platform (UWP) keeping the increasing demand for the web applications and smartphone applications. Windows allows us to design apps at once and run them across multiple devices that use Microsoft products, such as personal computers, tablets, Mobile phones, embedded systems, Xbox, Microsoft Holographics and Surface Hub.
Microsoft made substantial changes in the User Interface of the OS to meet the requirements driven by both mouse oriented navigation and touch orientation. Windows 10 can come handy especially for professionals that work on 2-in-1 computers which include most common elements from Windows 7 and Windows 8. The Microsoft web browser comes with a fingerprint and face recognition software to log in, it ships with DirectX12 and WDDM 2.0 to improve the operating system’s visual capabilities to enhance the gaming experience.
As we discuss the Application development for Windows 10 in this course, it is important to provide an introduction from a developer’s perspective. It is crucial to know how exactly modern apps for Windows 10 work and how they are managed by the system. The subject material we offer deals with the fundamentals of the topic, yet it is exhaustive on its own right. The course includes lectures about the common elements as UI artifacts because of the enhanced entirety of the OS when compared to Windows 8.
About Introduction to Windows 10 App development
Our Introduction to Windows 10 App development is targeted towards the beginners and intermediate level students who want to learn the app development concepts on the latest version of Windows OS. We take you through a step-by-step process to conceive and publish a great app on the windows desktop that equally works on mobile platforms. The operating system is highly successful within a short time after its launch and offers great capabilities to create effective and innovative applications.
Section 1: Getting started with Windows 10
In this introduction chapter about the Windows 10 Operating system, we will take you through the important features that help developers to understand the latest changes in the OS and functionality. After a brief introduction, you will come to know in detail about the Windows Store and Windows developer center. You will come to know how windows allow its users to reserve a new app and its name. We discuss in brief about the innumerable features of the OS variant and get your ready to kick start the course material.
Section 2: Universal Windows Platform
In this chapter you will learn about the most important feature of the OS, that is the Universal Windows Platform. It is developed with an aim of adaptive user experience in a multitude of devices that fall under the Windows operating system of the same category. We start with a detailed introduction to the concept and take you through various devices where a single app can be used. Later we discuss various platforms where your apps can be extended.
Before we close this section of the course, we will take you through the development roadmap of designing apps for Windows 10. The theory includes a myriad of elements and design paradigms that are commonly put to use to meet the standards and functionalities of Windows platform.
Section 3: Getting started with creating an app
At this point of the lecture, we deal with will start dealing with the Windows 10 apps. Now that you are already aware of the very basics, we will take you through the process from this lecture. We start with creating a new project, here you will learn how to setup your working environment which speed up your workflow and mitigates the level of confusion you will go through while you are working on your app development.
We take a new project “Hello World” and start to build the configuration for the project. Here you will learn how to create and add event handlers to the projects and how to make use of them while you are in the development process.
Section 4: Creating controls through XAML
This section is entirely dedicated to the XAML description language which helps you for building effective apps on Universal Windows Platforms. XAML is a powerful alternative to the traditional HTML/CSS languages. It serves the same purpose as the other two, allowing the developer to script the markup based declarations to enhance the User Interface elements of the apps. But the advantage of using an XAML lies in catering the innovative rational expressions that are not available in HTML.
During this lengthy lecture, you will come to know torrents of information about the XAML language and create multiple elements that help you to easily carry out your project. Some of the important elements you will know in this section are creating and editing buttons, Resizing shapes, setting up the panels, Events. Along with the mentioned topics, you will come to learn the themes and styles in XAML, date pickers, creating check boxes and various styles. At the end of the section, we provide you with information related to the online sources of themes in XAML.
Section 5: Navigation Model
As you are already aware of setting up your project and using XAML to achieve your desired interface, it is time to introduce to the Navigation Model of our project. We will start with a detailed introduction of the navigation model for the working project. Immediately, we will start to explore various parameters that govern the navigation and discuss briefly changing the parameters. At the end of the course, you will learn the practical way of navigating the pages through your apps in a detail functional environment.
Section 6: Windows 10 Mobile Emulator
One of the highly important tasks that any app developer should master is Mobile Emulators. It is a desktop application used to emulate an app designed within Windows 10 operating system parameters to check the output preview. The emulators created a virtual environment where you can test, check and debug your applications without needing a physical device.
During this session, you will learn about a common difference between the emulators used in Windows 8 and Windows 10 versions used for the mobile platforms. You will learn about a list of versions of emulators. Some other topics discussed in this section are working on a keyboard and SD card simulation.
Section 7: Adaptive Designs
This part of the course deals with the User Interface designs of the Window 10. During these lectures, you will come to learn about various effects and adaptive designs in the UI. We will start with exploring about User Interface and various rules you should adhere while designing an effective UI design. Other important elements you will learn deal with the aesthetics of the design including Typography and colors. We deal with various navigation panels and Menus including Hamburger Menus. Other subjects we discuss in the chapter are effective pixels, Snap points, and Adaptive Approaches.
Section 8: Visual States
In this chapter, we start exploring the details about the Visual states for Windows 10. Visual State is the condition where an app or design created in a certain size fits well into a device which has a different resolution. The concept circles around the UI designing parameters using the elements in a specific state. Here, you will start learning how to apply the design parameters to your project. Later you will see how the text designed in the project is fixed cleanly into a mobile phone resolution. At this point, we will discuss elaborately regarding the resolutions of various devices and how to work on an app that can go well fluidly.
Section 9: Relative Panel and Split view
In this final section of our course, we discuss the panels and views. The session starts with XAML controls and enters into the split view; we will discuss in depth about the two areas of the split views and explore the possibilities of having different widths for each split panel. You will learn how to open the panel through the existing properties. Later in this section, we will teach you how to create a hamburger buttons and create an event handler.

As a beginner, I see this tutorial as one of the best Windows 10 app development anyone can find. 11+ hours of comprehensive training which includes UI design techniques, UI elements, XAML, basic coding, tricks and tips and lot more. My understanding about Windows 10 has largely enhanced after taking this course. I strongly recommend this course, especially for fresher as me and looking forward to advanced lectures –
I liked the way the course is structured. It implemented every bit of information which is essential and strictly needed for better understanding of the subject. The curriculum is a fine balance between theory and practical lectures, omitting the theoretical part to overtake. I gained a great deal of information from the course. Thought if the course has a little bit more information about the UI elements within Windows 10 would make it much better. Still, it’s the best deal for your buck .
