Join part 2 next Wednesday, July 25 at 10 am PST.

Webinar summary: Windows 8 is just around the corner! As developers, we need to be ready to build Metro style applications. In the last couple of months, we got a lot of information already, although most of it covered the basics. It’s time to move beyond that.

This webinar picks up where the intro talks (see the recordings of earlier webinars on Windows 8) stopped, so expect coverage of topics you may have seen some content about or even none at all!

Agenda for Part 1:

  • Periodic tile updates and push notifications
  • Data
    • Data binding
    • Data controls
      • GridView loading on demand
      • Semantic Zoom
    • OData
    • Background downloads
    • Accessing services
      • WCF
      • JSON
    • Live SDK services

We welcome you to join part 2 next Wed, 10 am PST (check your local time), when Gill will talk about localization, async, building WinRT reusable components and more. Sign up for Part 2!

 As usual, we had a free ebook giveaway for the attendees and tweeters of this webinar: See who grabbed the ebooks!
