New to Windows 8 Development, but curious to see what the buzz is about? In this presentation we'll kick it off by helping you get your development environment up & running quickly. We'll also review some tips for existing iOS and Android developers working in the Windows 8 world. We'll show some ways to maximize code reuse between Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 apps, followed by a review of the Application Lifecycle, and a look at Windows 8 navigation patterns. Next, we'll do a bit of a deep dive into the fun world of Windows 8 Live Tiles, including flip, iconic, cycle, and secondary tiles.
