The Windows 8 App Store and Metro usher in an exciting new era of opportunity for Windows developers. The Windows 8 Metro interface transforms the PC into a visually-striking container for apps of all types.

Windows 8 XAML in Action introduces C# developers to Metro style app development. It provides full coverage of XAML, and addresses both the design and development of Metro style apps. Following numerous carefully-crafted examples, readers will learn about new Windows 8 features, the WinRT API, and .NET 4.5. They will also pick up tips for deploying Metro style apps, including sale through the Windows Store. And, of course, they will find the same deep, unique insights Pete provides in his Silverlight books.

AUDIENCE

This book requires some knowledge of C#. No experience with XAML, Metro, or Windows 8 is needed.

ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY

Metro is a design language, a runtime environment, and a type of application. It's designed for touch-first experiences and Windows 8 is the first Microsoft operating system that truly supports touch-centric design.
