Steve Ballmer & UK developers talk beautiful apps on @Windows8

A bunch of developers and designers got up close and personal with Steve Ballmer (yep, Steve Ballmer!) earlier this month at Modern Jago, Microsoft’s new collaboration space in Shoreditch, East London. The event showcased some of the best examples of the Windows 8 design and user interface, aka “…the most personal experience ever…a UI that’s live with the activity that people care about” and the opportunity that “the single biggest operating system platform in the world” that’s available to devs and designers with Windows 8.

We filmed the whole shebang which also includes interviews with Johnny Westlake who built Music Info, Agris Belte and Glen Flexman who created the British Airways Inspiration app, Janksy creator AJ Grand-Scrutton and Cameron Fisher who published AppSwitch.

If you’re ready to jump into Windows 8 design and development too then head over to for all the resources under the sun. Have fun!
