Abstract

You've probably heard the hype about Windows 8 and the Windows App Store. You may be running the preview or release versions of Windows 8 and already understand what a modern Windows experience feels like. But what does it take to deliver that experience using Visual Studio 2012? The sites dev.windows.com anddesign.windows.com can help you get started learning the basics and there are a few published end-to-end example apps that can also be useful. But most of the published training materials and books available now cover only Xaml and C# while Microsoft's stance is that you can put your current HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills to use building Windows 8 Apps too. This session answers "How?"

Jim will walk through the realities of working with HTML5 and JavaScript to build a rich client application. Some topics he will cover are the use of existing HTML5 JavaScript APIs like Canvas and IndexedDB as well as the paradigm shift necessary to build a completely asynchronous application.


Bio

Jim Jackson is the co-author of HTML5 for .NET Developers, available now at http://www.manning.com/jackson and available in print in late October or early November. (Note: This book is NOT about developing HTML5 applications for Windows 8 but you can use the HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills you learn to build Windows 8 Apps.) Jim has worked on rich HTML5 web applications for clients like Vogue, Rolling Stone and Playboy and is currently building an HTML5 game for the Windows App Store.
