This Wednesday, 07-Dec-2011, I’m having a whole day tutorial, showing how to develop Windows 8 Metro Style applications using C# and XAML from scratch. In this day you’ll learn what is a Metro style app, and how to use the API’s provided with the first Windows 8 Preview to develop great Metro style apps.
Here are the abstract & agenda:
Windows 8, Microsoft’s next generation OS designed to run on top of Desktop and Tablet machines, introduces the next step in the evolution of the Metro design style and application model. In this full-day tutorial we will learn how to build Metro style apps from scratch, based on C# and XAML. We will learn how to create immersive, touch-first user interface, based on powerful and flexible Metro style controls. We will talk about Metro style application lifetime and navigation models, live tiles and push notifications and see how to integrate all with our next-gen applications.
