Build immersive, responsive Metro touch apps for Windows 8 tablets, computers, and other devices! Top Microsoft MVP and Wintellect consultant Jeremy Likness shows how to leverage your existing C#, XAML, WPF, or Silverlight skills with new Visual Studio 11 tools and best practices to build incredibly powerful Metro/WinRT apps! Likness covers everything from line-of-business to consumer apps, showing exactly how Metro/WinRT builds upon and contrasts with earlier WPF/Silverlight development. Using outstanding code examples, he shows how to make the most of new platform features including integrated social networking and search, contracts, charms, and tiles. Designing Windows 8 Metro Applications with C# and XAMLcovers theentire application lifecycle, from planning and MVVM-based design through coding, testing, debugging, performance optimization, packaging, and deployment. Throughout, Likness addresses crucial development challenges that have only been discussed on MSDN, blog posts, and Twitter feeds -- and never with this depth and clarity before. His comprehensive insights and best practices will help readers join the "first wave" of Windows 8 developers -- and gain a powerful competitive advantage in Windows development for every new device and form factor. Bonus projects are available for download online.
