WinRT development - client side patterns

Time: 5:30pm pizza & networking
6pm presentation starts.

Presentation abstract:
WinRT on Windows 8 is a fantastic and exciting new platform for developers - but how do you get the most out of this new platform? New framework features and controls are one thing, but how does a developer (and designer!) really squeeze the most out of the new platform? In this session, Jordan will cover one of the most important facets of WinRT development - client side patterns. Not for the faint hearted - we explore the latest and greatest ways to build amazing applications, using patterns like Model-View-ViewModel, automatic convention based view selection, navigation, transitions, parallel workflows and much more. Walk away from this session wondering how you ever managed before seeing these techniques in action!
Warning: This is a level[masked] talk. Prepare to have your mind expanded.
