Open your window for next generation tablet merging Metro App & Desktop - Window

Giveaways: TShirts & Books from MSFT

Event: Open your window for next generation tablet merging Metro App & Desktop - Window 8

The next generation of tablet that is going to replace Netbook is going to run on Window 8 OS for small and medium size businesses and even consumers. This window-based tablet allows you to fire desktop and tablet app in a matter of finger flip. Finally you can have a tablet with enough power in both RAM and Disk to code your W8 app and launch instantly on the same tablet as local developer machine and mobile development device.

Our speaker will speak about Metro Application architecture and framework running on window 8, completely new architecture, where JavaScript is no longer a second class citizen in native mobile app compared to C#. A shorter session will be given on HTML5 for WP7.

Key noticeable advancement in MSFT development is allowing more developers to use existing skills in developing W8 app instead of locking into C# or .NET languages.

Double Features:

  • Dive into HTML5 (A Mini HTML5 Training, content from HTML5 WebCamp)
  • Metro Application Development using JavaScript/HTML5 on Windows 8

Speaker: Doris Chen, Developer Evangelist at Microsoft

    I want to love Metro 8, so why are many others apprehensive to the design, particularly regarding usability?
