Join us for HackReady, the new online learning series designed for developers to bring you the vital bits you need, without the fluff you won’t miss. Full of key information and demonstrations,
this series gives you a solid understanding of the tools, techniques, and resources you need to become HackReady.
The HackReady.Phone series brings you seven episodes, from start to marketplace. Whether you are a new Windows Phone developer thinking about your first app or well on your way to
publishing, these sessions help you get there. Join us for one or the whole series—pick and choose as you like. And you could win a Windows Phone, too. We choose a random attendee during every episode and give away a new Windows Phone.
In episode 5, you learn how to enhance your application to make it feel like a natural extension of the operating system, with techniques such as giving information to the user when
your app is not actively in use via Live Tiles, secondary tiles, and push notifications. We also talk about multitasking features via Background Task.
Windows Phone SDK 7.1.
