WIN280 – Metro (Windows 8 + Mobile) – Part 1          
Bruce Johnson, Atley Hunter
Recorded Live at ObjectSharp’s At The Movies 2012

The Metro interface has the potential to change how a lot of people use computers. You've already seen a little of it in the Windows Phone. More if you have downloaded the Windows 8 consumer preview. In this session, we will demonstrate how the power exposed by Metro (through live tiles, push notifications, immersive user experiences, etc.) can be harnessed to provide a usable and intuitive application.

NOTE: This extended TechDays TV session will continue on May 22.

DEV281 – Visual Studio 11 and .NET 4.5           
Colin Bowern, Bruce Johnson
Recorded Live at ObjectSharp’s At The Movies 2012

We're still a few months away from its release, but the beta version of Visual Studio 11 and .NET 4.5 is available and with a Go-Live license too. With Visual Studio, reduction and simplification are the keywords. For .NET, assistance with parallelism this session is the big topic. Between these and other topics, the tools that will make your development life easier are covered.

and just because the first June episode is already confirmed as well, might as well include it so that you can save the date!
