Windows 8 XAML Apps- Tips, Tricks & Techniques

The launch of Windows 8 and Windows RT in October 2012 offers developers an incredible new opportunity to be first-to-market, reach customers and offer them a first class experience when they use their new Windows 8/RT device. The Windows Store ensures that developers can easily monetise their efforts by taking care of app purchases and licence management on behalf of the developer.

Microsoft has ensured its existing .NET developer base can hit the ground running when developing Windows 8 apps by bringing forward well-understood technologies such as XAML and the .NET Base Class Library onto the new Windows Runtime platform. Web developers are also catered for; WinJS allows them to develop apps and re-use their skills in JavaScript and HTML5.

Of course, even with many well-understood technologies having been brought forward, WinRT is still a completely new platform, and as such there will be new things developers will need to learn in order to make the best apps possible. This article will give .NET developers some tips, tricks and techniques so they can hit the ground running when they start developing Windows 8 Store Apps.
