My New Book Project

March 5, 2013

Those of you who follow my blog may have noticed a slowdown in posts. The main reason for this is that I am working on a new book, titled “Windows 8 C++ App Development” to published by Packt Publishing in about 2 months time.


The book has now an official URL in Pack’s web site (no Amazon link yet, but soon…).

The book is aimed towards C++ developers that want to use the power and flexibility of C++ to write Windows 8 Store Apps, while leveraging XAML as the UI technology. It includes a good coverage of C++/CX and most features of Store apps.

For those interested, these are the chapters:

  1. Introduction to Windows 8 Store Apps
  2. COM and C++ for Windows Store Apps
  3. Building UI with XAML
  4. Layout, elements & controls
  5. Data binding
  6. Components, templates and custom controls
  7. Applications, tiles, tasks and notifications
  8. Contracts and extensions
  9. Packaging and the Windows Store

I’m now in the rewrite/fixes stage. Once that’s done, I’ll be returning to “normal” post pace.
