Description

To build great Windows Store apps with the Windows Library for JavaScript (WinJS), it helps to start thinking about things like activation and Process Lifetime Management as early as app conception. This talk covers key concepts to keep in mind while you structure your app, and it also offers some tips and tricks for handling asynchrony and data binding.

      Josh Williams gave a nice overview of WinJS.  It showed some fairly hardcore aspects of WinJS, but was not quite the Deep Dive I was hoping for.  Chris Anderson also joined the talk and together they discussed protocol handlers, navigation, and promises.  Protocol handlers is a great way to allow your app to communicate with other apps and with the desktop.  It's also a feature that I feel is often overlooked.  In addition, I'm happy they discussed Navigation and Promises as I feel these are both areas that people will and have already gotten quite hung up on. Overall a great talk, I could have listened to them for hours.
