An overview of developing Metro applications for Windows 8 using WinRT, XAML & C#.

    Great presentation!! Well organized, thorough and insightful presenter. There is a lot under the hood of WinRT, and Daren certainly has the experience and presentation skills to make this among the best, if not the best, user groups I have ever attended.
