  • Microsoft's on-demand sessions offer a deeper dive on developing for dual-screen experiences.

  • You can check out all of the sessions at Microsoft's event page now (opens in new tab).

Microsoft wrapped up its keynote for its dual-screen Developer Day, but that isn't all the company had to share. On the event page (opens in new tab) for the Developer Day, you can now check out several on-demand sessions that cover a variety of topics. The main thrust of all of them, however, is building apps for Windows 10X, Surface Duo, and Surface Neo.

There are 10 pre-recorded sessions to watch, and they cover everything from security and deployment to building dual-screen experiences with Windows UI. There's also a session that takes a look at how Windows 10X runs UWP and Win32 apps, one for bringing Android apps to Surface Duo, and building cross-platofrm experiences with React Native. If you're a developer, there's a lot to take in here.

These sessions come alongside the launch of the Microsoft Emulator and Windows 10X imge today. This follows up on the launch of the Surface Duo SDK and emulator in January. Microsoft now has all of the tools in developers' hands to start creating and porting apps for its dual-screen lineup due out later this year.

  • I enjoyed watching these sessions. I like the passion the presenters have for this. Additionally, I think Microsoft has the right approach to helping everyone understand what Windows 10X is in addition to the dual screen device hardware.
