Windows 8 introduces Metro Style applications. This session will provide an overview of what’s new and try to help put what it all means into perspective.
Pete Brown is a XAML and Gadget guy at Microsoft, as well as a former Microsoft Silverlight MVP, INETA speaker, and RIA Architect. He’s a father of two, and in complaince with local laws, husband to one. When not trying to blow stuff up, or electrocute himself (or talk about himself in the third-person)
Pete focuses on the community around code that has nothing to do with a browser (Windows 8 XAML, WPF, Silverlight, .NET Micro Framework, Robotics, and more), with a particular focus on XAML and things that blink in the night. Pete has written two successful Silverlight books with Manning, and has a Windows 8 XAML book on the way. It will be amazing, and your purchase will help him afford replacements for the stuff he has blown up in the course of research.
