Agenda
• Introduction
• WinRT / Metro Apps
   • Demo 1
• Interacting with SharePoint
   • Demo 2
Introduction
• Windows 8 is a great leap forward
   • New, streamlined UI
   • New application execution model
   • Designed for touch
   • “It’s Windows 7 + other things”
Windows 8 Application Modes
• Desktop
   • “Classic” Windows 7 Applications


• Metro
   • Windows Runtime (WinRT)
     Applications
Windows 8 Architecture
Metro-style Applications Quick Facts (I)
• Run on Windows Runtime (WinRT), not .NET CLR
   • But VS11 will make “trimmed” NET 4.5 app that “translates”
     NET calls into WinRT calls and vice-versa
   • Automatic mapping between data types
   • You can mix JS, C#/VB and C++ in WinRT
Metro-style Applications Quick Facts (II)
• Rely heavily on Asynchrounous Operations
   • Task<T>
   • async / await keywords
• Visual Studio 11 has built-in templates for common application
  styles
• There’s only one app active any time
   • Plus one “snapped” app
Demo



  Windows 8 Metro Application
Interacting with SharePoint
• SharePoint API
   • Server OM
   • Client OM
      • NET, Silverlight, JS
   • ASMX Services (Lists.asmx)
   • REST (ListData.svc)
• Custom services
Interacting with SharePoint from WinRT
• SharePoint API
   • Server OM
   • Client OM
      • NET, Silverlight, JS
   • ASMX Services (Lists.asmx)
   • REST (ListData.svc)
• Custom services
ASMX / Custom WCF Services
• Visual Studio 11 generates the proxy for us
• Supported WCF bindings
   •   BasicHttpBinding
   •   NetTcpBinding
   •   NetHttpBinding
   •   CustomBinding
REST Services (ListData.svc)
• Visual Studio 11 can’t help us
   • Data Services are not (yet) supported
• Use System.Net.HttpClient or HttpWebRequest instead
   • Parse the Atom XML data with Linq-to-XML
   • In JS/HTML Metro applications use WinJS.xhr
• Use Windows.Networking.BackgroundDownloader to
  download documents by URL
Demo
