Gain a deep practical understanding of Windows Store Application¿design, architecture, development, and deployment¿using C# or Visual Basic.¿

¿

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, this radically different tutorial teaches you the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding. Instead of merely parroting syntax, you'll gain profound insight into Windows¿8.1's most important innovations and best-practice development techniques.

¿

Internationally respected author¿and¿application architect¿Rebecca Riordan helps you understand¿Windows 8.1¿in context¿and¿¿use¿the¿XAML¿controls, properties, events,¿commands, and touch language. You'll learn today's best ways to use binding, data sources, and structured data; work with typography, animation, rich media, and custom drawing; master¿XAML’s¿advanced Resource Model; and take full advantage of application elements, context, connectivity, and¿deployment capabilities. Throughout, Riordan calls specific attention to innovations that make¿Windows 8.1¿different and better than Microsoft's previous¿XAML¿technologies.

¿

Using¿Fluent Windows 8.1¿Development, experienced Windows .NET developers can master¿Windows 8.1¿development more easily and naturally than ever before.

It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.
