Want to be an app developer? Get your start with Windows 10.
In this app development course, you’ll learn the basic concepts of consumer app development that can be used across platforms and how to develop responsive and adaptive apps that can be deployed across a wide range of Windows 10 devices.
With Windows 10 and the Universal Windows Platform, you can create a single app package that can be installed and used across different device form factors. Build once and deploy to mobile, desktop, and other device’s families. This course will take you through the design phase, show you how to develop responsive and adaptive user interfaces for Store apps, and finish with how to publish to the app store.
This course is most applicable to hobby, independent or novice developers who want to build Windows consumer apps.
No prior app development experience is necessary, but some experience with object-oriented programming will be an asset.
