When Windows 8 was first introduced, a huge opportunity opened up for web developers.  How so?  Anyone with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript skills could now apply such skills to developing apps, not just sites.  This is due to Microsoft supporting the development of WinRT apps with either C++, .NET, and/or JavaScript.  How different is it from writing a web site vs. an app?  If you are a web developer and you want to find out, be sure to look at the DevRadio episodes on developing for Windows 8 in half the time (4 minute videos) or the comprehensive “jump start” training series on HTML5 for Windows 8.  Moving onward, it will be assumed you already have a degree of experience with developing apps for Windows 8 using HTML5, and you are interested in what’s new or changed.
