Develop Windows 8 apps with HTML5, JavaScript: What Web Developers Need to Know

This session outlines some of what you can do with new HTML5 and CSS3 features introduced in Internet Explorer 10. Internet Explorer 10 is the browser for rendering modern (HTML5/CSS3) standards-compliant websites. It is also one of the foundations for Windows 8 app development.
Get started writing Windows 8 apps using your HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery and CSS skills today! You already have a Web app on the Internet and want to reach customers with a new, targeted experience on Windows 8. Come get practical guidance and best practices on how to reuse your Web assets. Come dive into the specifics of this exciting platform and see how you can use your Web skills to build deeply-integrated Windows apps.
• You’ll discover how this mirrors or differs from traditional Web programming and how to harness the rich capabilities of Windows 8 through JavaScript and the Windows Runtime.
• You'll learn techniques for turning your HTML5, CSS and JavaScript into a great Windows app including touch-enablement, adopting the Windows look and feel, and system integration.
This session will arm you with everything you need to know to start building Windows 8 apps with the skills you already have.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
