12 June 2009 Traning Kit, Windows 7 Robert Muehsig

image Microsoft released the Training Kit for developer yesterday. It contains presentations, Hands on Labs and democode for the new Windows 7 APIs.
The Traing Kit is directed towards to C++ developers, but Microsoft offers Wrapper classen for .NET.


    • Taskbar
    • Libraries
    • Multi Touch
    • Sensors and Location
    • Ribbon
    • Trigger Start Services,
    • Instrumentation and ETW
    • Application Compatability


.NET Devs:

Some API will be integrated into the .NET 4.0 Framwork, e.g. Multitouch input, the taskbar & jumplists in WPF. With the Wrapper from Microsoft you gain access to the other APIs. The wrapper classes are open source (and are not supported by Microsoft!).
