Building Windows 8 Metro Applications XAML

Monday, December 12th, 2011 at 6:00 pm

You must bring a laptop. DeVry has tables with outlets so don’t forget that power supply. We recommend more than 1 Gb of RAM and at least 10 Gb of free disk space. External USB or Firewire drives really help. We will help you get organized and install the right software for continued virtual fun! We have Internet access but you need to bring an Ethernet cable. If not, make sure that all required software is on your machine when you arrive.

Windows Developer Preview makes it easy for you to build exciting apps that let your customers focus on their important tasks. The tools and samples included in the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Metro style Apps help you build apps that are alive with activity and vibrant content. You write Metro style apps using familiar technologies like HTML5, JavaScript, and Cascading Style Sheets, Level 3 (CSS3), or XAML, with C++, C#, or Microsoft Visual Basic code-behind. This way you can rapidly prototype, refine, and sell your apps.

Rob and Anthony will explain VS metro style app offerings and go into each step as we progress through the hands on.

  • Win 8 Developer Preview download: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516
  • You will want the download option that includes the developer tools
  • This will need to be installed prior as we will not be reviewing the install of Win 8
  • You can still follow along without Win 8, but will not be able to participate
