Windows 8 Store Application (#WinRT) Development Tutorial for #Win8Dev



Windows 8 introduced a new type of application set named “Windows 8 Store app” which has a new look & feel (earlier named as “Metro UI”). Developers can host & sell these WinRT apps from Windows Store, a new digital platform from Microsoft. Windows Store will allow both free and paid applications where the ranges may vary from $1.49 to $999.99 in case of paid version.

If you are a Visual C#, Visual Basic, Visual C++ and/or JavaScript application developer, you can build applications for Windows 8 Store using any one of those languages. I have started building a Tutorial series on WinRT (Windows 8 Store) application development using Visual C#, XAML templates.
