We will meet on Thursday, December 15 at Addecco's offices at 101 Bullitt Lane. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the presentations will begin sharply at 7:00 pm. Along with a great presentation, we'll have food and raffle prizes. Be sure to RSVP so we know how much food is needed.

For December we have Samidip Basu to talk about building Windows 8 Metro Apps:

Heard the buzz about Windows 8? Well, come on out & we shall take a look at how your XAML, Silverlight & Windows Phone skills carry forward in the Windows 8 Metro app world. We shall cover basics of how to build a Metro-style app using XAML/C# using WinRT APIs like Contracts. We'll also talk about how to touch-enable your Metro apps & adjust for various screen resolutions. In short, attendees should be able to walk away with a good understanding of how to get started building Metro apps using XAML & managed code for Windows 8.
