Summary of the session: Windows 8 introduces a new process lifecycle management. No longer does the user have to close an app explicitly. Instead, Windows manages everything. But how can we then run code in the background, is this even possible in Windows 8?
Turns out there’s a specific API that we can use to build processes (or tasks) that run in the background. It offers quite a few options, varying from simple using push notifications, over RAW notifications to more complex scenarios using the ControlChannelTrigger. In this session, we’ll take you through the several options offered by Windows 8.
