We talked about:
1. The Windows 8 experience
2. What’s new in Silverlight 5
3. WinRT – the new cross-language Windows client platform
4. Building a Metro Style app with XAML
5. Building portable libraries for cross-platform apps
I think attendees appreciated that we let them play with the new Windows 8 tablet…

This week in Ottawa, I did a full day workshop on Silverlight, as a pre-conference of the DevTeach Canadian event.
I showed how to build from scratch a business application, from the Db to the UI, covering these topics:
- Entity Framework
- WCF RIA Services
- Sécurity (users and roles)
- MVVM and Command
- Animations, Styles and ControlTemplate in Blend
- Silverlight Spy tool (www.silverlightspy.com)

The app I built is from the MS hands-on-labs, you can get all the word doc and vs files there:
