The WDK Driver Verification and Test Tools enable driver developers to resolve issues sooner in the development lifecycle. This enables developers to build drivers in a more timely and predictable manner, and lower the cost of development, testing and long term support. Topics for this session will include the Static Driver Verifier, Code Analysis, Driver Verifier, Device Fundamental Tests and guidance on how to run each from the new Visual Studio WDK environment.

Windows 8 enables device makers to extend the built-in device experiences through differentiated Metro style device apps in several device categories. For the broad set of devices that do not fit those categories, whether using native Windows components or custom drivers, Windows also provides a mechanism for creating and delivering custom experiences. This session describes key concepts and recommendations on how to enable and build Metro style apps for such devices.

Device developers spend considerable time and effort properly designing and developing drivers. Once built, they also need to make it easy for consumers, OEMs and enterprises to obtain and install the drivers. This session will discuss best practices for packaging and distributing drivers, and will focus on signing, handling device metadata, Windows Update policies, and the various distribution paths available to driver developers.
