Ever since its recent launch, Windows 7 has been enjoying rapid consumer adoption and glowing press reviews. This makes it a great platform to launch your next Killer App! In this session, we will explore how to architect an application to take advantage of several compelling Windows 7 features including multi-touch, integrated search and multi-processor improvements. We will review how others have exploited this growing "Windows 7 channel" to deliver applications ranging from enterprise line of business applications to consumer oriented, "mass appeal" applications (think Social Networking clients). As a bonus, we'll demonstrate how to quickly build Internet Explorer 8 Web Slices and Accelerators to complement your Killer App and to provide new channels to extend your reach. If you've got a great idea for a Killer App, don't miss this session. If you design, architect, and/or develop applications for fun/profit, then this fast-paced session is for you.
