SilverlightShow Webinar: Contracts and Charms in Windows 8

This webinar has been delivered on April 24th, 2012.

Presenter: Gill Cleeren

In Windows 8 Metro, applications don’t communicate directly with each other. The OS has built-in contracts available out-of-the-box which make it possible that applications interact with each other without knowing each other. This way, one application can expose its own data for others to read. Another contract makes it possible to expose a common search functionality from within an application.
This new way of using these contracts is something that Metro application developers need to learn in order to build a killer application on Windows 8. In this webinar, Gill Cleeren will explain you the available contracts and how to use them to their limits in your application.
