    as per our discussion here is the main windows 8 reference with samples in the various languages: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/ and here is a link to the add SDK http://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/SDK-DDK/Microsoft-Advertising-SDK.shtml if you want to build apps with adverts and then the virtual labs might be helpful as well http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/jj206431

    I think it was a great discussion and helped me wrap my mind better around windows 8 and the perception in the market place.

    It was ok - it was my first meetup with this group. Could only stay for about 1.5 hrs.
    Did not really cover what I was interested in due to technical difficulties.

    Speaker was late by an hours and wasn't prepared when he got there.

    The original speaker bailed, his substitute was unprepared and was 45 minutes late. The presentation setup/projection system was horrendous and the room was freezing.

    And the security guard for the building had no idea about the meeting going on, so turned me away the first time. I'm told others never could find the room.

    Due to the latency issue; I think that the discussion was the more useful part of the meeting.

    Having said that, I did find the meeting useful and enjoyed the presentation. From my knothole; it was a good meeting!

    Presenter was 45 minutes late. Then when he arrived, he spent more time talking about himself than he did about Windows 8.

    we can do intro material but really we can focus on just about anything you want from code to app analysis for the market place etc.

    I agree with Kyle. How much useful content will there be?

    So, we have a roster change. Mike is incredibly busy right now and won't be able to make it tomorrow night... BUT he's bringing in a ringer to fill in for him... Wirestone's Principle UX Architect and Microsoft MVP David Kelley.

    Unfortunately, no. Mike has been on vacation this whole month, but he's promised me that he'd get me more info by end-of-day.

    Is this going to be a lot of coding or just a newbee overview slideshow?? I just don't want to waste my time going to Seattle if I already know most of it.
