I love Build. It’s a great conference that always has some great energy, amazing people, and a ton awesome conversations. This year I was given the opportunity to speak on Building UWP apps for Multiple Devices. The talk was a lot of fun, with the notable exception of having to […]
It’s been a few years, but I have a new article published in this month’s MSDN Magazine. This article looks at using the Remote Systems API from Project Rome in UWP apps. If you haven’t looked into this piece of Project Rome / Graph, then this article will be a […]

Unfortunately my annual trip to Microsoft’s MVP summit was cut short this year due to some client obligations. But hey, gotta pay the bills. While I’m sitting in one of SEATAC’s airport lounges, I decided it would be a good time to get a blog post up. However, I’ve just […]

Both of these projects should now be stable enough to use, although the WordPress client still only […]
Climbing back out of the rabbit hole I got myself into (see http://tonyc.me/1wjOD5Y), I’ve finished with my first iteration of the WordPress library for universal apps. This still has some cleaning up to do and you will need to download the xmlrpc.universal project from http://github.com/TonyChampion/xmlrpc.universal in order for it to […]
