Learn how to make your own Windows 10 apps from the developer of SongArc

If you have wanted to learn how to make a fully featured universal Windows 10 app, a new online course from Pluralsight might offer that opportunity. The course, "Introduction to Universal Windows Platform Development with XAML", is now available to check out.

The course is being lead by András Velvárt, who has written popular Windows apps such as SongArc and the SurfCube 3D Browser. Here's a quick description:

"With an expected one-billion devices running the OS in a few years, Windows 10 is a great opportunity for Microsoft developers. For the first time in history, Microsoft is providing a unified OS and App Store and a universal development platform for the whole range of devices: traditional desktop computers, phones, tablets, huge touch-screen displays, Xbox, Internet of Things devices, and even Hololens. This development platform is the Universal Windows Platform, and this course will get you up to speed on how to create an app targeting the UWP with XAML, the same powerful technology Windows 10's start menu and the new Office apps are built upon."

The course has a free trial version, or you can pay $29 a month or $299 a year to check the full version, along with 4,500 other online courses.
