The most significant developer opportunity. Ever. Apps are the heart of Windows 8, but what does that mean for developers? Find out by joining us for an exciting Code Camp session. See how Windows 8 and updated versions of Visual Studio and Expression Blend make it easy to build your next app. Experience the capabilities of WinRT, charms, live tiles, and more! Web developers can leverage their HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript skills to build great Windows 8 apps. After a brief introduction to Windows 8 and new developer tools, we will implement data binding, media capture, live tiles, and contracts for a content-centric WinRT app in HTML/JavaScript.

The Speaker(s)


Alice Pang

Alice received her BS in Electrical Engineering/Software at Stanford and her MS in Industrial Engineering/Management of Technology at UC Berkeley. After 3.5 years of getting developers excited about building apps as a Developer Evangelist at Microsoft, she’s now getting developers excited about monetizing their apps with MoPub as a Developer Advocate at Twitter. When she's not speaking or building resources to ensure a great developer experience, you can find her training in circus arts.
