Speaking Sessions

  • Moving your Silverlight Phone Applications to Windows 8

    10:45 AM Sunday   Room: 4301
    In this session you will learn how to move your XAML based applications to the new Windows 8 Metro Style application platform. In particular, I will show the steps involved in moving the EventBoard Windows Phone 7 app to Metro. Topics involve code sharing, tips and tricks, differences, similarities, and unique capabilities of the metro platform, such as semantic zoom and charms (the search contract), as well as some of the built in WinRT controls like the GridView and JumpView. Attendees should be familiar with XAML, C# and MVVM. This will be a session packed full of useful tips and code!
