Hopefully by now, most techies who follow MSFT keenly have had a chance to learn about Windows 8. BUILD Conference launched the pre-beta version of Windows 8, along with the developer tools that helps us build touch-centric Metro apps for Windows 8. There is obviously much to digest & learn .. these are the two best places to start:
- http://www.buildwindows.com/ — For the BUILD Keynotes & Session recordings.
- http://dev.windows.com — For the Windows 8 Developer Preview & development tools.
If you attended the CONDG meeting, I would appreciate feedback. So, why is this Windows 8 stuff important? No, it is not another ecosystem that we are being asked to fill up with apps; it is WINDOWS!! And yes, that means 400 million PC users as potential customers when they eventually switch to Windows 8. And that, my developer friend, is opportunity! So, what are you building?
