I have been learning about building Windows 8.1 apps using WinJS.  This has been a pretty big paradigm shift for me as I have been a strongly typed C# Win Forms, WPF and then WinRT guy for quite a while.  However, learning something new is always a good challenge, so I decided to get started.  If you know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript this isn’t a big change, but I have not done a lot of web dev recently, so I needed to work through the basics (and or refresh) my knowledge of these technologies.

In this series of blog posts, I plan to share some details of what I have learned along the way from the resources, to keep concepts and examples. 

There is a sea of resources for this type of thing, but I choose the following self-study resources to get started.  I’ll provide the full list of web tech resources you can work through if you would like to, but I found my review and working through the W3 school HTML, CSS and JavaScript courses enough to get me started.
