Windows 8, the newest platform for mobile apps, is the next generation of the most popular operating system in the world. Windows 8 apps provides a new opportunity for developers to provide a more immersive experience on the desktop or on mobile devices.
Here's a highlight of what we'll be discussing together:
Part 1 - Design:
Metro style design - Principles & the Windows Personality
User interface & user experience
Touch interactions & animations
Metro style apps
Using Visual Studio
Handling data requests & formatting
Migrating apps from WP 7 to Windows 8
Introducing the Windows Store
NOTE: In May, we will be hosting a Windows 8 workshop where you can take your learnings here and turn your very own app idea to reality! Stay tuned...
If you are a tech startup or a student developing Windows apps, check out the number of free Microsoft software and perks through initiatives like BizSpark and DreamSpark.
Bring your questions and ideas to this session, we hope to see you there!
