    Last Silverlight TV was last summer and really haven't had anything the like since. Any word if we're getting any developer shows like that back?

    Windows 8 Anyone?
    And shows with new topics like Windows 8. Windows 8 development is for sure starting places and the only references are the BUILD videos. Heck even the Windows 8 Dev Center is stale, with last updates on it's content being August 2011. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/)

    Does Microsoft not want us to start developing or not?

    If I were you, I'd wait for the beta - then at least most of the features will be tied down.

    I guess we can see more stuff after beta, hopefully.

    Apparently Windows 8 is currently a banned topic for MS.

    It turns out however that Microsoft has placed an embargo on any Windows 8 content whatsoever in the magazine. I am not permitted to write anything about Windows 8 in my MSDN Magazine column until further notice.

    I guess Charles have got some special permits for the great GoingNative show, but we really need to wait longer to see more.

    But we can start by suggesting the name of the show, lets not go with 'Building Windows' stuff, how about 'On Runtime' ? Smiley

    Can't wait for anything, we're building an app for Microsoft Smiley

    Guess we're stuck with BUILD videos for the next few months #sadpanda

    That sounds more like a decision by MSDN Magazine than a general edict across Microsoft, perhaps they just felt that readers of the printed material prefer not to have articles on aspects that are still subject to change. It's easier, after all, to update web material than hard copies.
