Why would a web enthusiast care about the future of Microsoft Windows? Because the new programming model for building compelling, connected, native apps that harness the full power of the PC will allow HTML5 and JavaScript developers to use what they already know. And because the new marketplace for distributing these applications gives you a potential paying customer base of more than a billion people. In this talk, you’ll get a hands-on introduction to the next version of Windows, and see how the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors. We’ll cover how to build Metro-styled applications using HTML5 and JavaScript, and connect you with tons of resources so you can capitalize on this new opportunity that brings your web skills to the next level.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
