Windows 8 Dev Camp Vienna review

Since it was advertised for "Expert programmers" i gave Microsoft a chance and spent 1 full day at the Windows 8 Dev Camp at Microsoft.

The first presentation was more ...lets say "marketing slides driven", but it nevertheless contained some good tips:

  • Thomas Mutzl prepared some non-trivial examples of Windows Store apps: one for a Video App and one for a Maps App. A third one is on the way which deals with RSS feeds.
  • all presentations from the Dev Camp (and much more) can be downloaded at Windows 8 Camp in a box
  • If you know already your next cool Windows 8 App but didnt find the time to code it yet, at least you should reserve your app-name

The second part was much more code-focused and contained some interesting details
