It's 2015 and with the release of Windows 8, touch is becoming the norm for PC users. PC manufactures are releasing touch-screens for everything, including laptops. This doesn't mean that you have to abandon you skill set and write Windows Store Apps to utilize this functionality. With Telerik UI for WPF, you can make any app touch-friendly with just a couple of lines of code.
In my session at TelerikNEXT 2015, I took a standard WPF app and turned it into an application that responds to various gestures including: swipes, pinch, tap, tap and move and tap and hold. We also looked at various touch-friendly controls and explore scenarios of when you should or shouldn't use this feature. The slide deck from my presentation is embedded below.
