10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8

19 Oct

Yesterday I did a talk at CNUG about Windows 8. I talked about 10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8.

So what are the 10 things every .NET developer should know about Windows 8 – if you got 90 minutes to present them? I choose these 10 topics:

  • Design does matter
  • Snap and Scale Beautifully
  • Presenting Data
  • DataTemplateSelector
  • Async is Great
  • Use the right Contracts
  • Invest in a Great Tile
  • Connected and Alive
  • Take care of Process Lifetime
  • Notice the Fine Print

Some of the topics are quite large – how can you talk about presenting data or async in less then 10 minutes?! Seriously!! Well I hope the participants got a good glimpse at some of the cool features available in Windows 8 and that some of them enjoy their really cool Bluefragments Windows 8 t-shirt :)

You can get my slides and my demo from my SkyDrive http://sdrv.ms/PE4pqm.
