Software Gardening

Craig Bernston • Chief Software Gardener at Mojo Software Worx, Microsoft MVP Creating great software is not like construction. It's more like gardening.

XAML Cubed – Developing for the Browser, Desktop & Phone

Greg Lutz • Dev Tools Product Manager at ComponentOne Despite some compatibility issues, it is possible to write code to be used by all 3 platforms in the XAML realm. While the platforms – Silverlight, WPF and Windows Phone – present differences in their nature, there are ways to develop code that can be used across all 3 of them. This session will cover some tips and tricks for writing code that can be used across these Silverlight and WPF platforms.



Mike Hostetler _•_CEO at appendTo, LLC This talk is a quick but thorough introduction to the jQuery Javascript Library. If you have zero experience with jQuery, this is the talk to start with. We will cover jQuery and its history. We'll then start by introducing basic jQuery concepts and principles. Finally, we'll conclude by building a basic jQuery plugin. The content of this talk will be much different than the jQuery training offered prior to the conference. Because of the available time, the training will be diving deep into jQuery concepts. This talk will cover some of the same topics, but will only cover them briefly.

Building Windows 8 Metro Apps with HTML5 & JavaScript

Rich Dudley _•_Technical Evangelist at ComponentOne One of the many new advances in Windows 8 is the ability to create Windows applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. In this session, we'll take a look at the Windows 8 technology stack on which these applications run, how HTML/CSS/JS apps actually run, and discuss the implications of the different ways to utilize third party libraries such as jQuery. We'll then migrate an MVC application which utilizes jQuery into a Metro-style application. By the end of this session, you'll have a solid idea of what it means to have a Metro-style application built with web technologies.
