Session 1 Materials

Danny will begin this session by priming you with the latest revolutionary changes that have come in Windows 8. Walking you through Microsoft’s latest brain child, he’ll ensure you understand the fundamental differences between Windows 8 and its ancient predecessors.

After a quick recap of C# 5’s async/await pattern, Kevin will teach you everything you need to know about the entirely redesigned application security that is mainly driven by capabilities. Afterwards he’ll dive into the highly asynchronous WinRT API and discuss its intuitive structure and essential features by developing a multimedia showcase app on the fly.
