At the Austin stop of the #ModernApps2013 road trip, Carl and Richard chat with Phil Japikse about building Windows 8.1 applications. But first, a serious conversation about disaster relief and the Humanitarian Toolbox - Phil talks about leading one of the open source projects for helping disaster relief professionals get up to speed on a given disaster site. Then the conversation turns to how organizations are building Windows 8.1 apps. What are the differences between 8.0 and 8.1? What are the breaking changes, and how do you get up and running in the new model? Lots to think about here.
