Overview/Description
Security is an important aspect of any app that handles sensitive data. In this course, you'll learn how to implement encryption functionality in your Windows Store apps. You can also increase the efficiency and functionality of your Windows Store app with features such as background tasks. You'll also learn how to implement background tasks, asynchronous features, and WinMD components to optimize and extend your apps. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft Exam 70-485: Advanced Windows Store App Development Using C#. This exam is a requirement for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD): Windows Store Apps certification.

Target Audience
C# Developers with basic knowledge of Windows Store app development who want to learn how to configure a Windows Store app to use encryption, background tasks, asynchronous features, and WinMD components; individuals preparing for the exam 70-485 Advanced Windows Store Apps Development Using C#

Prerequisites
None
