Industry Web Conference takes place on the 23rd & 24th April 2013 in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and kicks off on the 23rd with a Windows 8 workshop from one of our Microsoft Evangelists, Andrew Spooner. Andrew will be running this day long session to introduce you to the new Windows 8 OS and the design and UX patterns that exist in Windows Store apps. The content of the workshop will be split into two with the morning giving an overview of the Modern UI and explore the new Windows experience and design principles. You will also be able to familiarise yourself with the development environment so you can understand how to download and run sample apps. Whilst the afternoon will build on the essential idea for an app and hep guide you through the process of turning it into a Windows Store application that will stand out from the crowd.
