If you missed last week’s APIMASH Webcast on the Social Networking APIs, don’t fret…below, you’ll find the recording of the webcast featuring yours truly, and my peers Lindsay Lindstrom and Tara Walker:
Here’s the abstract from Channel 9:
Join Microsoft Technical Evangelists G. Andrew Duthie, Lindsay Lindstrom, and Tara Walker as they cover several of the APIMASH Starter Kits that incorporate popular social networking APIs like Meetup, Facebook, and Twitter. This is a recording of their June 12th, 2013 webcast.

If you’d like to catch the next couple of webcasts, there are two more you can catch:
- Wednesday, June 19th, 12:00 PM EDT – Exploring the Yelp API
- Tuesday June 25th, 12:00 PM EDT – Exploring the Bing Maps API
If you can’t make those times, as with the above webcast, those recordings will be posted to our APIMASH feed on Channel 9.
With unprecedented reach across a range of devices and availability in over 200 markets, there’s never been a better time to build for Windows and Windows Phone. APIMash Starter Kits for Windows show you how to use public Web Service APIs (such as Bing, Edmunds, Tom-Tom, Twitter, Tumblr, Yelp, Meetup and many others) to create compelling Windows Apps.
One of the things that I like about building Windows Store apps using Visual Studio 2012 is the availability of several rich and useful templates. One of my favorites is the Grid App template, which demonstrates how to build an app with a hub page listing grouped items in a ListView control, a group details page, listing information about each group, and an item details page, for information about specific items.
