Author's note

The complex and dynamic world we’re living in is becoming a challenge, especially for business-critical applications. Users are more tech-savvy today, and they expect more from an application. Security challenges are increasing day by day, and as the number of users grows, applications need to scale accordingly.

The developers need to adjust to this dynamic and they can do that by being able to work on an application without completely rewriting it, to focus on the components that need to be enhanced, or to use the same deployment techniques of modern application for classic desktop applications.

I hope this ebook helps you understand better how Windows 10 can help you take Windows applications to the next level without having to rewrite them with the help of MSIX technology.
