The opening video,

, brings us up to date with the Windows 10 story so far, from the initial release last summer of Windows 10 for desktop, laptop and convertibles and also for IoT devices such as the Raspberry Pi 2 and the Minnowboard Max, to the present release of the Version 1511 update.

Most significant in the Version 1511 update is the release of Windows 10 Mobile for phones and small tablets. This includes the new

, allowing modern devices such as the Lumia 950 and 950 XL to drive an attached screen such as a monitor or TV, in much the same way as a dual monitor setup for desktop PCs.

Along with phone support, there is also the new Build 10586 SDK which includes minor updates and bug fixes to the original 10240 SDK, and also a number of new APIs such as support for Bluetooth device pairing, Jump Lists attached to tiles, app listings in the Start Screen, and more.


Take a look at the new videos:

    – Andy Wigley and Shen Chauhan take you through a quick review of Windows 10 momentum, then an introduction to Continuum for phone. We explore the new Build 10586 SDK and review some of the updated UWP samples on Github, then explain how developers should version their apps to decide whether to target 10240, 10586 or both, and how to correctly program version-dependent code. Finally, we look at the new tools and packages in Visual Studio 2015 Update 1.

    – Liz Threlkeld joins Andy to take a deeper look at what it takes to build apps to run on the connected screen in Continuum for phone. For most developers, there are no specific extra steps needed, just create an adaptive UI for your UWP app and you are good to go. We provide recommendations on scaling assets and look at those special cases where you want to create an app that runs on both displays at the same time.

    – This API is one of the most exciting new features in the Build 10586 SDK. Formerly in preview in the original 10240 SDK, this API is now final and ready for use in your apps. Paul Gildea and John Serna from the engineering team show how to utilize new lightweight Visuals, Animations, Effects, and Manipulations to easily create smooth and highly scalable UI experiences for Windows 10 devices.

    – Microsoft is on a mission to do away with passwords and instead replace them with more secure two-factor authentication techniques based on your device and a pin code or biometrics such as face, iris, or fingerprint recognition. Rajen Kishna joins Andy to explain how it works and how you can use these modern authentication techniques not only to log onto your Windows 10 devices but also to provide authentication for your UWP apps. The sample used in this video is

    – A major goal for Version 1511 is to provide essential Windows 10 features for enterprises. Windows 10 machines can now be set up using workplace or education identities backed by Azure Active Directory. Accompanying that, the new Windows Store for Business provides great facilities for enterprises to manage and distribute apps for their employees, and allows app developers to distribute their apps to business and education customers. Shen Chauhan returns in this video to walk through how it works.

Don’t forget, these videos supplement the existing
