Beginning Windows 8 Application Development XAML Edition

Welcome to Beginning Windows 8 Application Development: XAML Edition. When I was first asked to produce a sample table of contents for what my Windows 8 development book would include, I spent a lot of time
thinking about the aspects of Windows 8 development that I felt would be most important to help a developer just learning to write software in a XAML-based environment. I thought back to when I was first learning to apply BASIC to an event-driven, GUI environment and realized that I would have been most helped by being walked step-by-step through the creation of a simple but complete application. The majority of this book focuses on introducing you to concepts that should be applied to production Windows 8 applications and then integrating
those concepts into an application that should be relevant to most readers. I hope that you learn as much reading
this book as I did writing it.
