Join Scott Peterson for an in-depth discussion in this video Agenda, part of Developing UWP Apps: 7 Toasts, Tiles, and Push Notifications.
- [Instructor] As with most of the sessions in this series, we're going to be spending most of our time in Visual Studio Code, and quite honestly, this is one of my favorite sessions in the entire series, really for a couple of reasons. Number one, the concepts of interactive and adaptive toast tiles and push notifications are heavily misunderstood and heavily underused in the Universal Windows Platform. It's taken a while for developers to ramp up to some of these concepts and see how powerful they are, but the second reason is, is that working with interactive toast tiles and push notifications is just plain fun.
So let's take a look at what we're going to cover in this session. First we're going to go through some of the concepts of adaptive toasts. This is a new term just as we were talking about adaptive layouts and adaptive triggers earlier on in this series, toasts and tiles are also adaptive, so we're going to cover those concepts, the concepts of adaptive toasts, and talk about different delivery methods, as well as talking about toast interactivity. Remember, toasts for controls, as we mentioned in earlier sessions in this series, and then we're going to take a look at working with toasts. Now we're going to do the same thing with tiles, but we're also going to cover some of the concepts of adaptive styling that's now available in the Universal Windows Platform, and we're going to take a look at working with tiles.
Interactive adaptive tiles. This includes live tiles and deep links. Then we're going to move into push notifications by talking about some basic notification hub concepts. Now, a full treatment of Azure, mobile apps, and Azure notification hubs is outside the scope of this session, but we'll at least cover enough information to get you up and running sending push notifications on your own. Now we're going to talk about channel registration, payloads, and events, and go back into Visual Studio and actually integrate push notifications into our Universal Windows Platform tagger app that we've been working on in this series, and as always, we'll finish up with some great next steps.
