Windows 8: A Tale of Two Stacks with Jeremy Likness
Jeremy LiknessMicrosoft has made a bold entry into the world of tablet PCs with the introduction of Windows 8. The new operating system poses an interesting challenge because it exposes a dual personality with desktop-based features (the “Blue stack”) and tablet-focused features in the Metro or “Green stack.” Jeremy Likness covers the new architecture for Windows 8 and highlights the differences between these stacks to help developers understand how to navigate their new options. In this webinar you will learn about the new WinRT component layer, legacy support, and the new options available for Windows 8 Metro-style development.

Jeremy Likness is a Microsoft Silverlight MVP who works as Project Manager and Senior Consultant for Wintellect with 15 years of experience developing enterprise applications. He has worked with software in multiple verticals ranging from insurance, health and wellness, supply chain management, and mobility. His primary focus for the past decade has been building highly scalable web-based solutions using the Microsoft technology stack with a focus on Silverlight since version 2.0.


Register to attend the webinar and you'll be entered to win a Wintellect virtual training course (a $499 value). The winner will be announced during the webinar. You must be present to win.

The LIDNUG and Wintellect series of events are sponsored by Syncfusion.
