Taking inspirational cues from Bauhaus design, International Typographic Style,
and cinematography, the Windows 8 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 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.
