    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.
