Do you think Windows 8 is last to the party or do you think Microsoft just completely revolutionized the user experience for computing? Have you tried it, or do you think I am just talking smack?
In the session, Clark drops the IDE and gets square with Metro. A new generation of computing is here and it starts with Metro. Yes we have new libraries and development tools but have you really thought about the bigger picture? Negative Space, Chrome, Tiles, Touch, Gestures, Semantic Zoom, Gutters, Animations, Notifications… Have you really thought about what Metro is and what it means to your business?
It’s time to clear your mind and start looking at what Metro really means. It’s more than some square corners and bouncing tiles. We will talk about Metro and its place in the Windows ecosystem. We will remove the chrome while looking at the different design aspects of great Metro apps. You want to make some coin right? Metro is here, but are you embracing its potential?
Don’t be the next battleship black.
