Windows 8 Resource List for UX

Most of you know me as a platform agnostic guy – I’m a user advocate who believes that vendor/brand loyalty can get in the way of designing an optimal experience. As such, you may find it surprising that I’m interested in Windows 8. Windows 8 is a major paradigm shift that contains elements of brilliance, such as live previews.

windowsI’ve had the honor of attending one of Microsoft’s first Windows 8 User Experience and Development Training classes the past three days, and on my breaks I’ve compiled a series of links that are valuable if you’re a User Experience or Design person.

There are some obvious disconnects in the approach, especially in regards to the experience, as it begins to break down past a certain point, but my hope is that the Microsoft UX team flushes out the logic throughout the OS in future updates.
