    With Metro, Microsoft has reinvented Windows for a new generation -- and delivered a gorgeous, scalable, exceptionally robust platform for building tablet and smartphone apps, too. Now, there's a practical, hands-on guide to building great Metro apps with XAML and C#. One step at a time, this book covers the entire development lifecycle, from user interface planning through debugging and publishing. Pioneering Microsoft developer Noah Weinert teaches each new technique through examples that integrate into a complex, feature-rich Metro application while reinforcing today's best practices for modular development. In just 24 sessions of one hour or less, Weinert covers: * Preparing for Metro-style development and understanding Metro solutions * Navigating among views * Adding interactivity * Retrieving and storing data * Styling views, controls, and tiles * Leveraging notifications and badges * Incorporating sensor input and proximity-based functionality * Sharing data among devices and applications * Streaming media via PlayTo * Creating apps for multiple displays and resolutions * Maximizing performance and reliability * Managing the application lifecycle, and much more Friendly, accessible, and conversational, this book delivers practical grounding in Metro development without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating. Each lesson builds on everything that's come before, helping readers learn all the essentials they'll need to create high-quality Metro solutions
