You must bring a laptop. DeVry has tables with outlets so don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. External USB or Firewire drives really help. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have Internet access but you need to bring an Ethernet cable. If not, make sure that all required software is on your machine when you arrive.
Rob and Anthony will explain VS metro style app offerings and go into each step as we progress through the hands on.
- Win 8 Developer Preview download: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516
- You will want the download option that includes the developer tools
- This will need to be installed prior as we will not be reviewing the install of Win 8
- You can still follow along without Win 8, but will not be able to participate
- They may want to review the 3 part series at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/br211385(v=VS.85).aspx
- You will be building the complete app by taking pieces from each of the 3 parts
- We will be explaining the code as we use it
