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.
My team is running a series of “hands-on labs online” events for Windows 8. The first 45-60 minutes are a presentation on some aspect of Windows 8 development, which is then followed by a hands-on lab that you can work through in a virtual environment online (so you don’t have to have Windows 8 installed on your local machine). The presenter is available to answer questions throughout the talk and the hands-on lab.
I am presenting a session tomorrow on Tiles & Notifications in C#. Register at https://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032527192&Culture=en-US&community=0.
