Windows 8 Style Application Development

– Jeremy Beckham (Envoc)

Windows 8 introduces a whole new application model.  Along with the new user interface, developers have also gotten several new API’s for better integration with the underlying Windows operating system and with other applications. I will cover how to create applications for Windows 8.  We will dive into the new Search and Share contracts and talk about a few of the other contracts available in Windows 8.
