One of the many new advances in Windows 8 is the ability to create Windows applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.  In this session, we'll take a look at the Windows 8 technology stack on which these applications run, how HTML/CSS/JS apps actually run, and discuss the implications of the different ways to utilize third party libraries such as jQuery.  We'll then migrate an MVC application which utilizes jQuery into a Metro-style application.  By the end of this session, you'll have a solid idea of what it means to have a Metro-style application built with web technologies.
