Pluralsight Course: Windows 8 From Start to Store

Shameless self-promotion warning!

I have released my first (but not last) Pluralsight course, Windows 8 From Start To Store Win8LogoThis XAML and C# – based course covers everything from design fundamentals to data to getting your app in the store.

I confess that I’m most proud of the sections on data binding and data storage as I haven’t seen enough coverage of these topics.  I also cover data display, and show how to use the GridView (for example) with and without templates, and how to handle snap view and semantic zoom.

Other sections include

  • Motivation
  • Design
  • Application Fundamentals
  • Architecture
  • Views
  • Databinding
  • Data
  • Application Lifecycle
  • Asynchronous Programming
  • Charms
  • Notifications
  • Windows Store

I very much look forward to your feedback on this course.

I’ve started work on my second Pluralsight course, From Design To Delivery, which will follow the complete design and publication of a full-fledged Windows Store 8 application.
