So I’m at Microsoft Build with a buddy of mine (Dan). We’ve had a day and a half of keynotes showing us how to make just one too many RSS readers; but overall we’re both pretty impressed with what we’re seeing in Windows 8. I’m actually writing this post on the Samsung Tablet’s that were handed out.
To really get to know the changes coming out we’ve decided to do a Hack-a-Thon and use these tablets with the new Visual Studio tools to create a “Metro Style” app (I’m already tired of that phrase). Our plan is to hit a session later this afternoon but to skip the party tonight and see just how far we can get with an app.
We’ve got a couple of ideas so far. But right now the only things we know for sure are we’re going to use the new hosted TFS account we were given, create an app that uses the new contracts for sharing and searching using C# w/ XAML.
Updates to come throughout the rest of the day/evening.
Let the Hack-a-Thon start!
