Bing Maps for Windows 8

Johannes Kebeck (Microsoft Corporation), Jaime Lang (Microsoft Corporation)
Workshop Yerba Buena Salon 1-3
Please note: to attend, your registration must include Workshops.

The consumer preview of Windows 8 was downloaded a Million times in the first 24 hours and Bing Maps supported it right from the start. The youngest member of our family of mapping APIs allows you to build Metro Style applications for the next generation of Microsoft’s operating system. No matter if you are a hardcore .NET developer or if you prefer developing with HTML5 and JavaScript – Bing Maps has you covered. Stop by if you want to get your mapping applications ready for Windows 8.

This workshop is sponsored by Bing
