When Fujitsu decided to launch it's Windows 8 tablet at the Microsoft World Partner Conference in Toronto, it seemed like a good idea to use it as an opportunity to showcase their application development capability and Windows Azure expertise with a native Windows 8 touch-centric line-of-business application. Steve will share his experiences in building Fujitsu's first Windows 8 application and share some tips and pitfalls, including integration with Windows Azure using the ASP.NET MVC 4 WebAPI.
Steve Morgan (pictured on his daily commute) is the Chief Architect in Fujitsu's Global Windows Azure Centre of Excellence. He's not supposed to be allowed access to code any more, but as a dedicated developer since the age of 12 and .NET evangelist since v1 was in Beta, he refuses to ditch Visual Studio for PowerPoint on anything more than an occasional basis.
