I explored some labs at Code2Challenge activity at Microsoft Open Technologies booth. Open Sources developers will find the following Microsoft open source projects very interesting. Give a try and let us know what you think and best of all contribute to them.
Microsoft Open Source Projects
Multi-Device Hybrid Apps Extension for Visual Studio
Web developers used to integrating open source frameworks within their code should take comfort in knowing that they will be able to use popular open source front end frameworks such as Angular, BootStrap, Backbone, Underscrore and WinJS. To help developers get started with the extension, samples are available for Angular, Backbone and WinJS, in the form of a To-Do demo app.
Open sourced WinJS
You can take WinJS code for a spin by visiting the “Try WinJS” site.
