MSDN Webcast: Integrating Sensor and Location Support (Level 200)

Tuesday, November 09, 2010 10:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)

The Windows 7 Sensor and Location platform makes it possible for your applications to adapt to the environment and change the way the applications look or behave. For example, imagine an application that uses a light sensor to detect the difference between indoor and outdoor light, and the application changes the brightness and contrast of its displayed content accordingly. In this webcast, we dive into the software development kit (SDK) and walk through some code to demonstrate how to implement this light sensor scenario. In addition, we show you how to use location to build better applications.

If you have questions or feedback, contact us.
