Learn what’s new for developers in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update!

Join us for an introductory keynote by Kevin Gallo and members of the Windows engineering team, followed by a live-streamed Q&A session.

We'll show topics for each type of Windows 10 developer:

Game devs

  • Game Mode and new performance enhancements improve the gameplay experience for most of your players.
  • Xbox Live Creators Program lets you integrate Xbox Live into your game and publish to both Xbox One and Windows 10.
  • Mixer is the only next gen streaming service that offers viewers real-time influence and participation in your players’ live streams.
  • Windows Store improvements help you promote your games with video trailers and control timing and pricing more precisely.

Commercial devs

  • .NET Standard 2.0 adds more than 20,000 new APIs and lets you share code across all your .NET code base.
  • Xamarin lets you use your existing C# and .NET skills to build truly cross-platform apps for iOS, Android and Windows 10 devices.
  • Desktop Bridge improvements to tooling and more make it much easier to convert your existing Win32 and .NET software to Windows 10.
  • Windows Mixed Reality delivers new levels of immersion to help you enhance the visual experience of your users.

Consumer devs

  • Microsoft Graph and UserActivity API make your end-to-end experience seamless by connecting screens and experiences across devices and platforms.
  • Fluent Design System helps you engage your users continuously across all their devices with beautiful, expressive experiences.
  • Tooling improvements within Visual Studio make it easier to create, convert and deploy your software.
  • .NET Standard 2.0 adds more than 20,000 new APIs and lets you share code across all your .NET code base.

Doors open at 18:00 and we'll have real developer food (someone said pizza?) served before the live stream.

The keynote itself starts at 18:30, so don't be late.

Bonus: if you attend the event at any of the viewing locations in person, you're in for an awesome (free) T-shirt. Simply go to the developer portal, fill in the form (MVP name: Bart Lannoeye, location: Ghent) and we'll have a shirt ready on the 10th.

If you can't make it to join in Ghent, there are other locations available to join fellow developers.
