The centerpiece of Microsoft's modern apps story is Windows 8 and the new Windows Runtime (WinRT) development platform. In this session you'll learn how to implement a smart-client application on WinRT that leverages the business layer, application server, data layer, and mobile services created in previous talks in this track. You'll leave the session understanding how and why you'll want to leverage WinRT features like search, share, and settings, along with other rich platform capabilities.
