Description

You're a web developer, you say?  All about web standards, too?  We'll bet you haven't (willingly) worked with the Microsoft web platform in years (or ever).  Well, we have a really nice surprise for you.  It's called IE10 (yes, we said "IE").  It's built around the emerging W3C web platform standards and arguably the most standards-compliant browser out there.  But that's just the beginning.  What if we told you that you could use those standards-based, web development chops you've honed over the years to create amazing and truly native experiences on Windows 8 with HTML/JavaScript Windows Store apps?  Okay, you can stop laughing now.  Because we're serious.  By the end of this session, you'll realize that you can build amazing, immersive and truly native apps for Windows 8 using HTML, JavaScript and CSS.  You'll even learn how to start building them today (as in NOW).  Interested?  Thought you might be.  We'll see you at the session.
