Free SilverlightShow Webinar: Latest and greatest in Win 8.1 for developers

Presenter: Gill Cleeren

Delivered on October 30th, 2013.

Watch the recorded session here!


NOTE: This session was originally planned to be delivered on Oct 23rd, but due to technical issues with the GoToMeeting webinar platform was rescheduled for October 30th, 10 am PDT!

Summary of the session: Microsoft has created a huge update for Windows 8, known as Windows 8.1. While the OS is definitely feeling much more polished, for developers, a lot has changed as well. The good news is that your apps still run without modification. The bad news is that, if you don’t take advantage of the new stuff, your users will get a less-than-optimal experience.

In this webinar, we’ll take you on a tour of all what’s new in Windows 8.1 for developers. We’ll take a look at the updates to XAML (WinJS isn’t covered), the updated Search, the new tiles, the new screen sizes, the great new features in Visual Studio 2013 and much more.

These 75 minutes will make sure you’re back on track for Windows 8 app development!


Join our post-webinar survey! Three of you who submitted useful and constructive feedback on this webinar will get a free copy of an ebook of choice from the 25+ titles on SilverlightShow Ebook Shelf, among which Gill's latest ebook: Connecting Windows 8 Apps with Services
