    Have you used this ebook to help you create a Windows Store app?

    • 0 Comments
    Hello everyone. Kraig Brockschmidt here. It’s been four months since the public release of Windows 8 and my free ebook, Programming Windows 8 Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (which has been in the top 10 free programming books on Amazon for some time, and in the top 20 in Computers & Internet overall). Four months has been plenty of time in which to write apps, and from the growing numbers of apps in the Windows Store, it looks like many of you have been busy with your own submissions. As always, we’re certainly interested in hearing how you’ve used the book, what you’ve found most valuable, and what can be improved. My editor, Devon Musgrave, would love your feedback via devonm@microsoft.com . More to the point, though, we’re interested in this question: have you used the ebook to...

To my fellow Data Lover, The most important part of any application is its data. Data is used for user accounts, orders, game scores, news items, status updates, documents, photos, music, images—the list goes on and on. It used to be that data was all about bytes stored on a hard disk and how quickly our applications could access these bytes. But for today’s modern cloud-based applications, topics related to data now include: The geo-location of the data center...
