Requirements Requirements

The objective of this course is to allow developers to write applications in Metro-style, the new application model available with Windows 8. Metro-style apps can run either on ordinary desktops, or a new family of “post-PC” devices designed to compete with the iPad.

This three-day course is designed for .NET developers who want to fully understand how to port their skills over to Windows Runtime, or WinRT. The course will take students through all of the important aspects of building this new type of application.

Silverlight developers are obviously welcome, but no experience of Silverlight/WPF/XAML is necessary.
