Fundamentals of Windows 8 XAML/C# Metro Style Apps



This is a Windows 8 XAML/C# Fundamentals presentation I gave at the Spring 2012 DevConnections conference in Las Vegas. It covers some of the key topics you need to know to get started building Windows 8 XAML Metro apps including styling, animations, invoking the Windows Runtime (WinRT), the intrinsic controls, and more that will help prepare you to develop Windows 8 Metro style apps.

You can view my other sessions from DevConnections and Orlando Code Camp here:

Sample code shown in the presentation can be found here. A large number of samples are available in the Windows 8 SDK which can be found here.

If you like this you can check out the Windows 8 Fundamentals course Dan Wahlin and I co-authored for Pluralsight.
