U2U offers courses for Windows desktop developers both on the traditional WPF model and the more recent Universal Windows Platform.
A Windows Desktop app is a traditional Windows application. They run on the traditional desktop and are developed with Microsoft .NET Windows Presentation Foundation
on top of the Win32 API.
Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app is a Windows experience that is built upon the Universal Windows Platform (UWP), which was first introduced in Windows 8.
At the core of UWP apps is the idea that users want their experiences to be mobile across all their devices from desktop to tablet, smartphone or even their IoT device.
