The August 2013 Meetup of the The Windows Developer User Group is scheduled for August 19th from 6PM to 8PM @ TechColumbus. Please see details below & kindly RSVP.
Designing for Windows 8.1!
Taking inspirational cues from Bauhaus design, International Typographic Style, and cinematography, the Windows 8.1 UI design style brings an application to life while presenting content clearly and beautifully. This session is intended to help developers and designers understand the design concepts and basic building blocks of the Windows 8.1 user interface. In this session, you will be introduced to the principles behind this design style and learn how to effectively apply these principles in your applications. Plotting your next Windows 8 app? You don’t want to miss this!
