With Modern UI (previously called metro) Microsoft redesigned most of their product setup, whether you like it or not it’s here to stay. With the basic templates available to the developers for Windows Phone and Windows Store apps, you will at least get a decent looking application with little effort.
But what if you want to make a bigger mark than that, how can you stand out in all this conformity. Are you even allowed to if you want to call yourself a proper Windows application creator?
In this session I will look into the current state and explain what the essence of Modern UI. I will then examine how it's possible to evolve. How you can break out of the tiles, while still obeying the design principles.
