I have left Microsoft and this blog is no longer under my control. All of the content should remain for some time however and any new updates can be found at http://davedev.net.

If you have been looking for an opportunity to develop an application step by step this it! Full source code and instructions are provided in both html and docx formats. So print them out, pull up a chair, and code up the Contoso Cookbook sample at your own pace.
The Windows 8 Camps are still ongoing (across the globe!) too so if you haven’t attended one yet be sure to sign up or register for the upcoming MSDN Webcast Windows 8 Development series. Once you are settled into coding your next masterpiece let me know about it so I can help you get a Windows Store token.
Dave, do you know when the code camp labs will be upgraded to Release Preview? tx. Tom
@Tom - I am being told "very soon", so I would expect something any day now.
I noticed the Code samples have been updated to Release Preview.
@Tom - Yes, you can grab them here: www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx
