Building Immersive Windows 8 Apps

March 26, 2013 Leave a comment

I am excited to be presenting with my friend Brian Hitney tomorrow night at the Charlotte Enterprise Developers Guild.

Here is a summary of what we will be presenting:

Windows 8 opened up a whole new set of possibilities for application developers in terms of how their applications can interact with the underlying operating system, with other applications as well as with the users. Specifically this includes the ability to utilize Contracts (search, share, settings) to give the impression your application is ‘one’ with the operating system as well as creating live Tiles to allow your application to communicate with the users even when the application is not running. In this session we will take a look at how you can use Contracts and Tiles to provide your application a great user experience and make your users feel truly engaged.

Hope to see all of you there!

I had a great time presenting at our first meeting!  We had a good turnout and it is going to be a lot of fun continuing to work with the group.  I appreciate all the enthusiasm and support from the members and look forward to some great meetings.

Here is a link to the applications that I demoed during the presentation:  games
