Windows 8, is it right for business?

Bruce will be presenting the value and business case for Windows 8.

The devices will be available during and after the presentation for a hands-on experience by the OCCA audience. He will also provide tips for developers and IT consultants that will allow them to convey the Windows 8 advantage to their customers, who may be wondering whether they should upgrade.
