    I'm sorry to have missed it. Very long day and was stuck in traffic.

    One of the best talks I've heard regarding designing for Windows 8! Instead of prescribing how Windows 8 apps should be designed, Bart shares a wide variety of app designs that break away from their norms. Insightful discussions afterwords and wished there was more time to talk!
