Q&A Hightlights with author Calvin Janes

An interview with Developer's Guide to Collections in Microsoft® .NET author Calvin Janes.

Why is your book especially important now?

Developer's Guide to Collections in Microsoft� .NET Applications are becoming more complex in order to compete in today’s market. Yesterday it was MFC, COM, HTML, Windows Forms, and so on; today, it is Rich Internet Applications.

Sam Moreau, Principal UX Designer for Windows, joined by Larry Larsen at the Build Conference on Day 2 to talk about the Metro Windows 8 UI. Where did swiping from the edges come from? What is the idea behind Charms? How do you swipe through apps backwards? Should every application migrate to a Metro style over time? Where should developers who are new to Metro start? Sam and Larry cover all of these and more.
