September was a busy month – teaching a WPF training, a ASP.NET Core training, and giving two presentations at BASTA! .NET Core and UWP.
What happened else? Some great announcements happened in September: .NET Core 1.0.1 is available, TypeScript 2.0 is released, and Angular 2 is final!
Let’s get into more details.
Professional C# 6 and .NET Core 1.0
With my newest book I’ve updated the code samples to .NET Core 1.0.1. I’m also in the process working through the samples and marking all the samples that not only run on Windows, but on Linux as well.
See GitHub Professional C# 6 Source Code for the progress.
Professional C# 6 has been iProgrammer’s book of the week: Book of the Week
Universal Windows Platform
I’ve done a few posts about the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), such as:
Navigation within Apps
How the navigation between different UWP apps is done is shown in
Menus and toolbars as have been a requirement in previous Windows editions is no longer necessary, also the Windows 8 app requirement to not shoow navigation elements on the screen (without user interaction to navigate) is gone. The apps are a lot more flexible today, and different apps have different navigation mechanisms as shown.
Hamburger Button and SplitView
A concrete example how to create a Hamburger button, toggle a SplitView, and use the AdaptiveTrigger for different Window sizes is explained in
Source code has been added to More Samples.
