UAP, HoloLens, Recommended Readings – Developer’s Collection

 

uap

 

BUILD Conference is less than one month away (29th, April). I’m collecting some of my posts relating to app development on Windows 10, some of my findings/thoughts about developing for HoloLens.  My intention is to give you one-place-for-all approach, but it’s obviously not. However, if you have done Windows or Windows Phone development before, the links I gave in the posts are pretty much it. For the moment, there isn’t much really, but remember to get a good understanding of the following terms: UAP, Mobile Extension, Adaptive UI, SplitView, RelativePanel, Metro Design Language (the term may have changed, but influence has not). There is a little bit of Windows Holograhic APIs, but nothing materialized. We are expecting to hear a lot more during BUILD conference.

I have a couple of other writings related to this topic. I will add them here when they come out.

By the way, it is a good idea to download and install Windows 10 Technical Preview and Windows 10 Technical Preview SDK. Before install the SDK, download and install Visual Studio 2015 CTP6 first, which can be downloaded on the same link with the SDK. I suggest you install them on a VM. There are some instructions on PCWorld. Also, please make sure you have about 50GB or more space on your hard drive for the whole thing.
