Building Microsoft Teams apps in C# and XAML

Microsoft Teams are part of our daily lives. We use Teams to communicate and connect both in work and outside of it. What if we make the experience even better by developing new original apps that enhance your workflow? And what if we could write these apps using technologies we already know and love - C# and XAML? In this session we will use Uno Platform to build our first Microsoft Teams app!

Two years of open-source contributions

I have discovered Uno Platform a year ago and immediately fell in love with it. Uno makes building cross-platform apps in C# and XAML a breeze. After using it for a while I have realized some features I would like to use were not implemented yet. Because of that I started contributing and haven't stopped since. Two years and 280 merged pull requests later, I want to share the story about how much contributing to open-source helped grow my skills, widened my perspectives, and talk about the amazing experiences it brought into my life.

Building cross-platform apps with Uno Platform

In this workshop we will introduce Uno Platform app development and build your first fully cross-platform app in C# and XAML.


Sleep. As geeks we often forgo the natural need for it to just figure out this one last bug, play a few more rounds of our favorite multiplayer game, or unwind with our favorite TV show. The cost, however, may be much more than just a slight tiredness throughout the following day. Let's journey through what sleep is, why it is vital to our life, and how reducing its length has dire consequences to you as well as everyone around you. Finally, we will also cover practical tips to help you get more zzzzzzzz!

From Windows Phone to WebAssembly: The Story of Uno Platform

Uno Platform is an open-source solution for building truly cross-platform .NET apps running on desktop, mobile, web and even IoT. Even though it was open-sourced in 2018, it has a long history even before that - going back to the mobile platform we all miss - Windows Phone. Let's rewind the time a bit and tell the story of how we got where we are now.

Modern apps with Windows App SDK

Windows App development was in a turmoil in recent years, as several Windows app development frameworks came and went. However, now we finally have a promise of a framework that is here to stay. Let's tour what Windows App SDK brings to the table and how it can help us build new apps and modernize existing ones.

Do not disturb

Today's world is filled with notifications beeps, ads, multitasking and information overload. Our ancient brains were not built for this kind of operation though! Let's look on how the modern society is destroying our ability to truly focus, and how its harming everyone's performance. And then, let's try to find the cure!
