May 2012 Meeting - Development on Windows 8

May 7, 2012 11:17 by davec

We're meeting tomorrow night at 7p in the CS building (room 204) at Mercer. Our guest speaker is Glen Gordon, the Developer Evangelist at Microsoft. Come out to talk to Glen and to eat a snack or two.

"Getting started with Windows 8 development and HTML"

The next version of Windows, code-named Windows 8, will provide unprecedented opportunities for developers, designers and startups. The programming model for building compelling, connected, native apps that harness the full power of the PC will allow HTML5 and JavaScript developers to build native applications on par with Microsoft's traditional technologies. And the new marketplace for distributing these applications gives you a potential paying customer base of more than a billion people.

In this talk, you'll get a hands-on introduction to the next version of Windows, and see how the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors. We'll cover how to build and design Metro-styled applications, and connect you with tons of resources so you can capitalize on this new opportunity that brings your skills to the next level.
