Windows makes it easy for developers to create apps that can talk to their device, such as a phones or TV, by using Wi-Fi Direct. This session describes the key concepts, APIs, and samples, and walks through examples that show how Windows Store apps can use these APIs to control Wi-Fi Direct devices.

      Great presentation! 

      I thought WiFi Direct was just an Intel technology? - Will it work on an RT device as well?

      BTW Iterate is pronounced it-ur-rate

      I think you mean WiDi (Wireless Display).

      We need the wifi direct capability on windows phone 8 as well...
      That's a big ecosystem gap in terms of app/device communication
      XBoxOne|Win8|WP8|WinWatch all have to match up on the core elements - comm., storage, settings (managment), sensors, media, etc...

      Hopefully the reorg will help to get those lined up.
