The upcoming “Windows 8” operating system includes a new application development platform called the Windows Runtime or WinRT. In this session you will learn how WinRT fits into the overall Windows operating system and application platform, and see how it relates to .NET, Silverlight, HMTL and other existing development technologies. As we all look forward to the future of software development it seems clear that WinRT will rapidly become an important component of the overall Microsoft development platform, and you need the clear picture of this technology provided by this session.
