Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book doesn’t just focus on singular concepts, it also provides end-to-end perspective on building an app in WinRT. It is one of those essential tools for Windows developers that will help you complete your software goals sooner than without it!”
Tim Heuer, Principal Program Manager Lead, XAML Platform, Microsoft Corporation

“This is a great from-the-ground-up, very complete book on building Windows Store Apps. You’ll find it on your desk a year from now all dog-eared and marked up from use.”
Dave Campbell, MVP, WindowsDevNews.com

Programming with Windows Runtime by Example is a must-have book for any professional developer building apps for WinRT/Win8.1, especially in the LOB space for modern apps on Windows 8.1. For me it is the reference I provide my team building LOB applications for WinRT. Jeremy and John have done a great job putting together a great reference and educational book on professional development for the WinRT platform.”
David J. Kelley, CTO, Microsoft MVP

“Jeremy and John are both very much IT masters from the old guard of software development. With countless years of bending, shaping, and influencing the world of software development behind them both, they continue to do so as they push forward into new and emerging technologies.
     “As with everything they do, this book also reflects their ongoing dedication and passion for their quest to bring the reader not only the information he or she requires, but far more beyond that, they build knowledge step-by–step, then deliver it to the reader with cutting-edge, ninja-like precision to deliver exactly what knowledge is needed, when it’s needed, and where it’s needed.
     “If you want to learn the Windows Runtime, then I can think of no finer book, and no finer guides to the WinRT landscape. By the end of this book, you’ll have the knowledge, the power, and a hefty dose of passion to go out into the new millennium and create some of the best WinRT apps available.”
Peter “Shawty” Shaw, LinkedIn .NET User Group manager

“This book is an invaluable resource for budding WinRT developers. It covers the basics to more advanced topics like MVVM. Readers will find the chapter entitled ‘Connecting to the Cloud’ especially useful in getting up to speed with Azure and creating cloud connected apps.”
Daniel Vaughan, President of Outcoder, Microsoft MVP, Author of Windows Phone 8 Unleashed

“There are books that provide reference for a development topic, and others that you will read from cover to end. Programming the Windows Runtime by Example by Jeremy Likness and John Garland should be your go-to guide for getting up to speed on WinRT. Jeremy and John wrote this book with the intention of being easy to follow and hard to forget, and they succeeded in both areas. I recommend this book for all developers, whether new to WinRT development, or those like me who just want to fill in the gaps on advanced topics.”
Chris Woodruff, DeepFriedBytes.com, Microsoft MVP

OK, I'm a Windows RT developer, now a Universal app developer, and this book really feels in the gaps! Microsoft is doing a poor job (as usual) of spelling out all the new tools available on their new platform, and Jeremy does a fantastic job explaining all the important bits!

If you are thinking about writing a Windows App for consumers or Line of Business (LOB) this is the book for you. Jeremy and John do an excellent job explaining how to develop for Windows Runtime. Through the examples they show how to build an app with different capabilities. I plan to use it as a reference book as you can go to any section to get a good example and learn something.
