Speaking Sessions

  • Windows 8 Design

    9:45 AM Saturday   Room: 5001
    Windows 8 is coming soon and brings not only a new model for developing modern apps, but a new model for their design as well. In this session, we'll talk about the design theory and then we'll put it into practice! Attendees will receive free design sheets to help solidify the concept of your app. We'll discuss the design principles, the design process, and the design implementation. We will focus on HTML/CSS for design implementation.

  • Advanced Windows 8 App Development with JavaScript

    11:15 AM Saturday   Room: 5001
    Web developers are now Windows 8 developers. With the advent of Windows 8's new WinRT architecture, if you're among the millions who know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, then you can create Windows 8 apps. This session will make some assumptions so that we can dig into more advanced concepts. The content will assume your familiarity with: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, basic Windows 8 app development. The following topics will be discussed: app architecture, advanced grid/list layout, programmatic appbar management, contract implementation, data binding and templating, OData interaction, and more.

  • One Sweet Stack: OData to Windows 8

    3:30 PM Saturday   Room: 4310
    This is not your grandpa's n-tier application! We'll start with a SQL Azure database, abstract the data with Entity Framework, syndicate it as OData with WCF Data Services, then pull it into Windows 8 using JavaScript. Our time will be spent mostly in Visual Studio with a little time in the Azure portal and a little in Blend.
