Book Description

Get a head start on creating "Metro"-style apps for the approaching release of Windows 8. If you’re new to .NET programming, this introductory guide will quickly get you up to speed on the tools you need to build user interfaces with Microsoft’s 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 you’re an experienced .NET developer, or build apps with HTML and Javascript, this book gets you in on the ground floor.
