I'm a geekette who enjoys playing with new technology for software developers. I work as a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft. My current focus is on machine learning and big data on Azure.
I gave an introduction to Windows 8 development and the Windows Store in an hour-long webcast. This webcast was part of an MSDN series, and is now published on Channel 9. Enjoy!
Introduction to the Windows 8 Platform and the Windows Store
Windows 8 is Windows re-imagined! Join this session to learn about the new platform for building Metro-style applications. Get an understanding of the platform design tenets, the programming language choices, and the integration points with the operating system and across Metro-style apps. We will also discuss the enormous opportunity for developers to make crazy money with the Windows Store. You will walk away with the resources to begin writing Metro applications for Windows 8.
