Its been a long past few weeks, with the announcement of Windows 8 and the Windows Runtime and the preparation for my presentation at the NYC Code Camp 2011.2. We had a really good turn-out, and I’d like to thank everyone who came to learn about the Windows Runtime. I started by off showing a bit from Build and Metro style apps. Then we went into an extensive overview of the Windows Runtime. For the coding demo portion of the presentation I started with a Silverlight application an converted it to a C# Metro style app with a C++ component. Then as the grand finale I ported the Silverlight C# ViewModels into new HTML/CSS and JavaScript Metro style app. All of the code has been uploaded to GitHub and the links can be found below.


There were a number of resources discussed in our meeting and for convenience you can see find them here.
