XAML For Windows 8: Read Me First

I’m pleased and proud to announce my newest book, from Apress, named either XAML For Windows 8: Read Me First or XAML Primer (we’re still discussing! Which name do you prefer?) 

If you are interested in learning Windows 8 programming with XAML and C# but your XAML isn’t yet up to snuff, then this is the book for you.

It is very short (about 100 pages) and to the point (you start writing code in chapter 1). It is the book to read before you tackle one of the full texts on Programming Windows 8 (such as my forthcoming Pro Windows 8 Development with XAML and C# with co-author Jon Galloway).

 

This book’s first draft is complete and we should have an e-version very soon.

  1. Has anyone been able to get it yet from the Apress alpha books program? I have been struggling for the past 24 hours to get a PDF from the Apress website after purchasing it with no luck. The Apress support team leaves a lot to be desired.

    Looking forward to reading your book Jesse, IF I ever get my hands on it.

  6. XAML for Windows 8: Readme.1st

    I like that it calls out Windows 8 by name. I also like the retro geeky callback.

    XAML Primer because it’s short.
