Event Details

Re-imagine your favourite application using Windows8!

As part of National Teleworking Week, The Edge has teamed up with Microsoft to bring you a day of app development in Windows 8. 

In this seminar Bronwen will introduce you to the world of Windows 8 RT apps, giving you a kick-start when it comes to planning and building your app on Windows 8.

The day will be divided into sections based on a concept which will contain a presentation giving an overview of the area, Hands-On-Labs related to the section, and workbook activities for participants to plan out parts of their app.

The day will cover a range of topics including – orientation, navigation, hierarchy of an application, search, share, app bars and live tiles.

Participants should bring a pen and a laptop with the following software already installed:

  • Windows 8
  • Visual Studio 2012 (full or express) – Trials are available. If downloading express make sure you download the “for Windows 8” version.
  • Hands On Labs. Note: The hands on labs can either be completed in C#/XAML or Javascript/HTML
  • Calisto, available as a NuGet package


Participants will be supplied a workbook to complete the activities during the day.
