The centerpiece of Microsoft's modern apps story is Windows 8 and the new Windows Runtime (WinRT) development platform, along with its close cousin WinPRT for Windows Phone. In this session you'll learn how to implement a smart-client application on Windows 8 and Windows Phone that leverages the business layer, application server, data layer, and mobile services created in previous talks in this track. You'll leave the session understanding how and why you'll want to leverage WinRT and WinPRT features like search, share, and settings, along with other rich platform capabilities.
