Gain a deep practical understanding of Windows 8 Store Application design, architecture, development, and deployment using C# or Visual Basic.

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, this radically different tutorial teaches you the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding. Instead of merely parroting syntax, you'll gain profound insight into Windows 8.1's most important innovations and best-practice development techniques.

Internationally respected author and application architect Rebecca Riordan helps you understand Windows 8.1 in context and use the XAML controls, properties, events, commands, and touch language. You'll learn today's best ways to use binding, data sources, and structured data; work with typography, animation, rich media, and custom drawing; master XAML’s advanced Resource Model; and take full advantage of application elements, context, connectivity, and deployment capabilities. Throughout, Riordan calls specific attention to innovations that make Windows 8.1 different and better than Microsoft's previous XAML technologies.
