Build and Publish a Windows 8 Game in 1 Day, Even Without Windows 8 (David Giard)

Sharing code across platforms can be difficult - however a Microsoft Portable Class Libraries (PCL) allows you write code that can be shared between apps written for Windows 8, Windows Phone, Silverlight, and other .NET Platforms. You can even call PCL code from Android and iOS if you are using Xamarin.

In this session, you will learn to write code that can be used by both Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

I will then show you how to start the Cross-Platform Cloud Kit to quickly build an application that targets both platforms and how to publish each application to the appropriate store.
