About this Video
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.
These starter kits will provide you a scenario, an app concept and a rich data set so you can more quickly develop any type of app and in a language of your choice, HTML5/JS or XAML/C#. Each kit calls an API, de-serializes the JSON/XML payload, copies the results in a View Model and binds to UI controls.
In today’s episode Andrew Duthie demos for us the Meetup/ Bing Maps Starter Kit. It leverages the Meetup.com API to search for upcoming meetups near a given location, with optional keyword filtering. Once the meetups are retrieved, the starter kit maps a selected item, and queries the Bing Maps Search API for nearby coffee shops, and maps those as well.
