Crossing the Chasm from Web to Windows 8 Development

With the introduction of the new Windows 8 platform Microsoft is delivering a whole new software development paradigm. Building applications for this platform is totally different from ASP.NET web development, and even differs from building WPF and Silverlight applications. Or isn’t it? During this talk speaker Sander Hoogendoorn, Principal Technology Officer and developer at Capgemini demonstrates the architecture, frameworks and patterns his team are using to switch between ASP.NET and traditional desktop development to Windows 8.

Target Audience: Architects, Developer.
Prerequisites: Some design patterns, software architecture, some .NET, web development.
Level: Practicing

You will learn:
Learn about patterns we use to build platform independent applications.

Extended abstract:
Using these advanced techniques developers with knowledge of the aforementioned platforms are capable of crossing the chasm to the new paradigm. Sander will show the major differences in building applications for these platforms, and introduce a reusable applications architecture that can be used on all platforms. Next he will demonstrate the patterns that his team applies to move forward. These include the new Define-Render pattern, how to build templated frames and pages in Windows 8 / Windows Store using or rather avoiding XAML, and advanced binding techniques. This talk delves beyond the basics of group-detail and group-item pages. Of course this talk is supported with many code examples and live coding.
