Starting from the visible portion of applications, the Windows user interface, their book guides readers through the steps required to acquire graphics and media, work with Windows contracts, handle data, discusses Live Tiles, and how to publish apps to the Windows Store. In fact, Dino and Francesco actually published the example “To-Do List” app for this book to the Windows Store; you can download it yourself for free.
It’s worth noting that Francesco currently has two more approved/certified Windows Store apps that—although not yet published and available—are currently listed as "publishing in progress.” Francesco based these other two apps, which contain biographical information for a couple of tennis champions, on demonstration applications included in the book. If a teenager can do it, you can too!
Dino and Francesco’s book will be available in May. You can pre-order the book now from O’Reilly or from Amazon.
