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. For all experienced and aspiring Microsoft developers and architects, especially those who are at least somewhat familiar with Silverlight, WPF, C#, XAML, and/or related .NET technologies.
