    Rebecca M. Riordan has an international reputation as an author and application architect. Her ability to make complex technical subjects accessible and understandable has earned her books a devoted following. In 2004, her book, Seeing Data: Designing User Interfaces for Database Systems Using .NET was nominated for the prestigious Jolt award.

    Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent Windows 8.1 App Development, part of the Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing XAML applications for Windows 8.1.

    Most introductory books just talk at you and give you “exercises” that have more to do with taking dictation than actually learning. Fluent Windows 8.1 App Development, is different. It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.


    • Develop Windows 8.1 applications using C# and Visual Basic .NET
    • Use XAML to create an application interface declaratively
    • Configure an application to work with all the required Windows 8.1 form factors
    • Integrate an application with Windows 8.1 contracts and notifications
