Building Windows Store Apps Essential Training

Course Summary

Start creating apps to distribute to Microsoft Windows desktops, tablets, and phones. This course lays the groundwork for coding and distributing your very first app for Windows 8. First, explore the XAML and C# syntax and the tools for developing your code, including Visual Studio and Expression Blend. Then discover how to lay out your app's interface; add color, transforms, and page-to-page navigation; handle orientation changes for mobile devices; respond to events; and accept input via controls and touch gestures. Author and avid developer Walt Ritscher also shows how to configure Windows Tiles, which makes your app accessible, and charms, which allow you to search your app, change its settings, or share app data. Plus, learn advanced techniques for viewing, editing, and storing data and system files.
