Earlier this month a gave a short presentation and demo at Microsoft’s Development Manager Forum July meeting. In this short hour We seen the new architecture and features changes in Windows8 and how we as developers need to adjust our way of thinking for them.
Part of the changes in the application model of “Metro” applications calls for a new way to notify our application on externals events that may occur using the Windows Notifications API. But this is not the only change, an even bigger one is the distribution model. The Application Store for Windows 8 extend our customer base and reach and there for we don’t have control on the amount of resources our backbone need to have. Here comes Windows Azure and flexible elastic environment that allow us to expand base on actual demand.
