Introduction to Windows 8 Metro Development with Andy Beaulieu

Windows 8 represents Microsoft's first official entry into the tablet space, and the Metro UI is how developers deliver unique multitouch experiences to this new platform. In this presentation, we'll look at the Platform and Tools for Windows 8 App development, learn about WinRT - the OOP replacement for Win32, and talk about what this means for traditional .NET developers.


Andy Beaulieu is a professional software developer and trainer with over 15 years of experience building applications for Windows and the Web. Located in Syracuse, New York, he is well versed in many Microsoft technologies including Silverlight, ASP.NET, ADO.NET and WindowsForms. Andy has been awarded a Microsoft MVP Award for Silverlight, and is a member of the WPF and Silverlight Insiders group.
