Business Insider states, "The Windows Store will be present on hundreds of millions of machines eventually, making it a new marketplace that will eventually be one of the world's largest." Tech Crunch sends a call to all developers stating, "The Windows Store is likely to be the last opportunity of its kind for quite some time."

The Windows 8 development platform opens up an exciting opportunity for developers of all ilk. From the managed code developer to the slinger of C++ and now the HTML/JavaScript Junkie, Windows 8 gives developers the tools and components to create rich, immersive, modern applications.

This hands-on workshop will focus on the fundamentals of building modern Windows 8 applications with HTML and JavaScript. In this workshop, we will cover topics including:

·       Async programming patterns

·       Patterns for composing a Windows 8 App

·       Managing App Lifecycle

·       Page Navigation

·       Integrating your App with the OS

·       Working with Tiles

·       Performance tips

·       Testing and Deploying your App to the Windows Store

You will leave this workshop armed and ready to take advantage of the opportunities starting to explode with the Windows 8 Store. As The Next Web asserts, "We may see a gold rush of sorts as the Windows Store grows up overnight." It's time to stake your claim now!

Bring your own hardware, we'll have the software need, Mac or PC, it's all good.
