I just rolled off a client recently that needed to build a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) application as part of their hardware and software solution. For those who aren’t yet familiar with UWP, you can check out this article by Tyler Whitney.
As many of you developers out there are aware, sometimes you have to build or bring with you a number of application infrastructure items before you can even get started with the core application logic. For example, you might need some helpers, services and base classes that make your job easier or allow you to start with your base patterns, such as, MVC, MVVM, etc.
Well, in order to get a jump-start in this direction, a group of Microsoft Evangelists, who have gone through the same troubles, decided to create an open source library of very useful items for UWP development called Template 10. In this first part of this blog series, I will show you how to building a Universal Windows Platform application using this library can be done effectively.
