May PADNUG - A Tour of WinRT using C# and XAML

Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus
5200 NE Elam Young Pkwy
Hillsboro, OR 97124, US (map)



Metro... no wait WinRT... no wait Window 8... no wait Windows RT... no wait Windows Store Apps - argh!! to much confusion! So what does WinRT have to offer? Is it worth the effort to learn it? This presentation is about Charles' experiences with WinRT as he dove into learning WinRT back in December of last year and what he has discovered along the way. He will attempt to give you the width and breath of what WinRT has to offer using C# and XAML but the presentation is not about C# and XAML. He came from a WPF/XAML background so it was natural fit for him. In addition, he intends to poke a lot of fun at Microsoft, Google, and Apple - especially at their marketing departments! Along the way we will have a bit of a history lesson coupled with a group quiz and in addition, we will try to discern the future. Oh, and who the heck stole the "Start" button! "That totally stinks!" - Bob "Bulldog" Brisco host of the Gonzo Sports Show KACL on Fraiser.
