Hello everyone,

We wanted to thank you all for attending the Windows 8 Webinar yesterday. As we promised in the webinar all of the materials are now available for you to download and explore on your own. If you have any questions then feel free to leave a comment below. We’d also suggest that you download the RadControls for Metro if you haven’t already.

For those that couldn’t attend, What is RadControls for Metro?

RadControls for Metro is the toolset for building Metro apps that run on tablets and large screens no matter if you are coming from the XAML or HTML/JavaScript world. Both libraries will offer the same user experience, functionality and behavior. Drawing from our expertise in XAML, HTML and Windows Phone technologies, RadControls for Metro are being designed to offer functionality on top of the Windows 8 SDK that will make your apps shine.
