January 2012 Meeting Announcement

The Windows 8 Developer Preview Safari

Microsoft’s Windows 8 is looking to completely shake up the computing industry, from handheld devices all the way up to the desktop. It includes a bevy of new features, including many security enhancements, and a completely new way for the end user to experience Windows. With the public release of a developer preview at Build last September, everyone’s been able to see firsthand what Microsoft has been working on. This presentation will take you on a trek through the new operating system, starting with significant high-level changes, continuing on into the internals of the OS, and finishing with examples of Metro-style applications.
