Publisher Comments:

Get a head start on building apps for Windows 8. With a series of examples, this hands-on guide takes you through the process of creating complete touch-enabled apps that respond to native sensors. Through the course of the book, youll learn how to work with the Windows Runtime application model while building a Bing Image Search app.

If youre an experienced .NET developer who wants to get up to speed with Windows 8, this book provides the expertise and C# code samples you need.

  • Get a high-level overview of Windows 8 features—from the Start Screen to in-app features such as the Application Bar
  • Begin by building a simple app to retrieve Bing image search results from a web service
  • Learn about the components needed to complete the app, including UI design, the MVVM architectural pattern, and “tombstoning”
  • Take advantage of native OS features such as tiles, file pickers, and sharing requests
  • Examine the steps necessary to publish an app to the Windows Store

Synopsis:

Get a head start on creating "Metro"-style apps for the approaching release of Windows 8. If youre new to .NET programming, this introductory guide will quickly get you up to speed on the tools you need to build user interfaces with Microsofts new design language, code-named Metro. Learn how to use WinRT and the preview version of the upcoming Visual Studio release, and get tips and tricks for having your app published in the Windows Store.

Windows 8 brings some dramatic changes to the way users interact with computers and devices, and the Metro design language plays a key role. Whether youre an experienced .NET developer, or build apps with HTML and Javascript, this book gets you in on the ground floor.
