Windows 8 Development

I wanted to follow-up on the presentations I gave during the Windows 8 DevCamp in Charlotte.  Here are the slides from the two presentations:

Cookbook I – Design Templates and Styles

Cookbook II – Data, Contracts, and Settings

Here is a link to the source code for ContosoCook:

I found a sample of Contoso Labs based on the Release Preview.  If you want to use the HTML labs be sure to follow these steps required to get the code to work based on the RTM:

As you are doing your development, be sure to adhere to the UX guidelines for Windows Store apps here.  You can download PDF of this here:

Badge Image catalog

Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows 8

Push notifications, Live Connect, and Advertising

Finally and probably the most important is the full set of code samples for developing Windows 8 applications:

Thanks to all who came out and are interested in doing Windows 8 development!

Hope this helps…
