Windows 8 Using XAML, Part 16: Working with Files

with Matt Baxter-Reynolds

Microsoft Windows 8 allows you as a developer to work with different devices without a lot of extra effort. First we are going to look at Windows Push Notification Services, or WNS. The point of having a mobile device is that you can get timely updates on things you need to know about. WNS makes it really easy to get those notifications through to your apps. Next up we'll be looking in detail at how we work with files. We'll start with sandboxing - how apps are protected from each other to increase stability and control malware. We'll look at the new file picker user interface, and see how we can read and write files to our own local store as well as shared locations on the local device and network.
