So, you have ported over your XAML app to Windows 8...but are you really a good Metro citizen? Are you taking full advantage of what it has to offer? This session will show you what a real world product (EventBoard) did to make itself at home, including:
- Settings Charm
- Share Charm
- Search Charm
- Semantic Zoom
- Snapped View
- Secondary Tiles
