VTdotNET: Intro to Windows 8 Apps for Windows Forms Devs, Kyle Mitofsky

Pizza and Soda sponsored by VTdotNET!

Windows 8 provides a great new distribution mechanism over a touch centric API. This talk will focus on the differences between traditional desktop applications and new Windows Store apps. We'll build a small metro application using VB/XAML and MVVM while leveraging new controls to build an immersive application that meets Windows 8 Design Guidelines, by supporting app bars, settings panels, snapped layouts, and asynchronous calls.

Kyle has been developing software applications for the State of Vermont for more than 78 weeks! (sounds better than a little over a year). He's interested in desktop, web, and mobile development technologies, especially if they're on the .NET stack. Kyle occasionally blogs about coding at http://codingeverything.blogspot.com/
