6:30 - 7:45: Laurent Bugnion, "Putting the Microsoft Design Language to work"
The new Microsoft Design Language (formerly known as Metro) has taken the tech world by surprise. It brings a refreshing change from hyper realistic design, and offers a welcomed alternative to the other mobile platforms. From Zune and then Windows Phone, the Microsoft Design Language is now used on a number of platforms and devices, notably on Windows 8 apps. In this session, we will see how we can practically convert the five design principles and put them to work, by studying real life applications and understanding how they were applied.
