This is a recording from an MSDN webcast on October 2, 2012.

Windows Store apps will give users a great experience. Apps promise the user to be alive and connected. Being connected means interfacing with services and the cloud. But what options do we have to make the connection to the outside world? In this session, we'll explore how WinRT apps can connect with services (WCF, REST...) and the cloud to offer a great experience. We'll also see how internals like roaming data can be used in your apps.
