Optimize your apps for the Xbox One gaming console. Learn how to make your Xbox development ready and create a basic Universal Windows Platform app.
- [Walt] Welcome to my Universal Windows Apps for Xbox One: Build Your First App course. Do you ever daydream about building a computer game? I know I do. I've got a notebook full of game ideas. The reality, at least for many software developers, is that most of our software projects are business applications or software tools, not games. But we can still write apps that run on the Xbox One. Join me as I walk you step-by-step through the process of building a video app. I'll show you how to make your Xbox One developer-ready and explore how the same app works on desktop and Windows phone.
