CapArea.NET BUILD Summary

Last night I gave a talk at the Capital Area .NET Users Group ( summarizing the announcements and new technologies coming out from the BUILD conference. We had a good crowd and great interaction with lots of questions as people tried to grok Windows 8, WinRT, and Metro and what it really meant to the kinds of apps they are building today. About half the crowd had not watched any of the videos from the conference, so they were starting with a clean slate in terms of understanding the new stuff, which made it interesting to see the kinds of questions I got.

I had a pretty simple slide deck and spent most of the time demoing things and discussing the concepts and implications, but here are the slides for anyone who is interested.
