Join Scott Peterson for an in-depth discussion in this video Agenda, part of Developing UWP Apps: 9 Background Tasks.
- [Instructor] Just like most sessions in this series, we're going to be spending most of our time in Visual Studio, actually writing code. But let's take a look at what we're going to cover in this session to make sure we have a solid understanding of background tasks and background task concepts. First, we're going to talk about some common scenarios to make sure there's an understanding of some of the used cases for background tasks. Then we're going to talk about background task types, independencies, and go into Visual Studio and actually add and configure a background task to our universal Windows platform app tagger.
Then we're going to talk about various system triggers and trigger conditions. Then we're going to go back over to Visual Studio and actually implement a system trigger and a timer trigger task. Then we're going to talk about something that's actually not documented with background tasks, and this is the concept of background user actions. This is usually connected with the concept of toasts, but I thought it was more appropriate to include that in the Background Task session, because they really are directly connected. And then finally, we get to one of the coolest aspects of background tasks. And that's the concept of real-time background task triggers using push notifications.
And then, as always, we'll finish up with some great next steps.
