Microsoft announced ground-breaking news at their BUILD conference in Anaheim, CA the week of September 12, 2011. While we can expect more news and details from the Windows 8 team in coming months. Perficient has compiled details and analysis from one of our Microsoft experts, Chris Woodruff. Chris is a member of Perficient’s Microsoft Competency Center specializing in Application Architecture and Development, and he leads technical business development for Windows Azure.
What does this mean for developers? Chris Woodruff agrees with Microsoft’s Steven Sinofsky, President of Windows and Windows Live Division, when he said that there is a great opportunity for developers and designers in the new Windows 8 release. This new development opportunity starts with having over 500 million potential customers buying and using your new Windows 8 Metro applications. The key to this opportunity is to leverage the new Windows Runtime (WinRT) to build compelling energetic applications that allow consumers to be more productive with your innovations.
Chris attended the BUILD conference and many of the Windows 8 developers sessions regarding this exciting upcoming Windows release. In the third webinar in this four-part series, Chris will outline the new development platform coming from Redmond, explain the truth of what WinRT is and also show how to develop new Windows 8 Metro applications.
