Back in the days of Windows Phone 7, Chris Koenig (@chriskoenig) wrote a nice little starter kit for building a WordPress app that ran on Windows Phone 7. It used a custom plug-in for WordPress that created a couple of feeds on the blog to be consumed by the app. It was a great little […]

Binding to Multiple Properties in Universal Apps

September 1, 2014

The binding engine in the various XAML stacks has to be one of my favorite features of XAML. Its clean, fast, and provides a great deal of flexibility to the developer. While examining a problem I came up against on a recent project, I realized I needed a controlling class to manage the appearance and […]
