Speaking Sessions

  • Advanced Windows 8 Development Using HTML/JS

    3:30 PM Saturday   Room: 4221
    Microsoft reinforces its commitment to web platform standards with the introduction of and ongoing support and improvements of HTML and JavaScript support for Windows 8 client development. The story is good and getting better. I'll assume you've got some web platform skills and hopefully even a bit of experience using it on Windows itself and I'll attempt to take you deeper into the stack to do things like make your own custom controls, tap into the animation library, implement the MVVM pattern, and more. It's bound to be fun! If you don't have any experience developing for Windows 8, don't write the session off. I'm sure you'll still glean some good tidbits at least.
