Building Enterprise Applications with SharePoint and Windows 8  - Shailen Sukul

SharePoint 2013 introduced developers to new ways of developing and distributing applications. Windows 8’s modern UI has also opened-up new opportunities to develop apps for the enterprise. Both evolutions are very exciting for developers!

In this session, we will be taking a look at the new features for developers. This will be done through an overview presentation where Shailen will demonstrate a SharePoint application in Office365, create a Windows 8 application then join the two together.
