Chris Bowen from Microsoft will be joining us to discuss developing software for Windows 8.
"An Introduction to Windows 8"
Windows 8 is Windows reimagined, and this talk will help you learn more by introducing the platform and the developer opportunity. We’ll take a look at the platform design tenets, the programming language choices, and the integration points with the OS and across Metro style apps. And of course we’ll dive into some code and see what’s new with developer tools to help you create Metro style apps.
