The new Apple TV is out and with it the ability to run apps! To make things even better, these apps can be built using Swift, Objective-C, even C#! This session will introduce how to create and design a tvOS app. Capabilities and limitations of the Apple TV hardware along with the architecture of the two different types of Apple TV apps will be explored. Differences between the tvOS and iOS APIs, how to respond to input and focus events from the new remote control and UI design best practices are some of the unique aspects of developing for this set top box that will be covered. So grab some popcorn, this is going to be good!

(The demos will feature C# code, but the concepts are easily applicable to all languages).
