- [Instructor] I hope you have found this course to be a useful resource to kickstart your UWP development. In this video I'll show you some of my resources to expand your knowledge. Some of them we've already mentioned in this course, and others are new. Hopefully you will find them as helpful as I have. To start off with, developer.microsoft.com/windows has a lot of information, from getting started guides to full API documentation for UWP apps, there's a lot to find here. Microsoft has also published a lot of small samples demonstrating many of the Windows APIs available.
These area all hosted on GitHub. If you go one level further into the samples folder, you'll see all of the APIs demonstrated here. Another resource that I found really helpful is a free open-source book on building cloud-connected, cross-platform mobile apps with Xamarin and an Azure Mobile App backend. This is an excellent resource to learn many of the more advanced features of Azure Mobile Apps. For example, if you want to leverage the authentication we implemented in this course to restrict your app service to only accept authorized requests, you'll find that here.
That and so much more. Finally, .NET is evolving rapidly, and right now is a great time to be a .NET developer. As you continue to build apps, I hope you'll find these resources as valuable as I have. With the skills you've just learned and the resources available to you, hopefully building UWP apps comes easily to you.
