The book is easy to understand for a Microsoft novice. It's well organized and thorough. I don't feel like I need to buy any other references or books to play around with code now.
Chas. Examples demonstrated the correct syntax and format which I was unable to locate on any sites to date. Bravo Chas…..
As a reference and modeling guide you could not do better. My only issue is the lack of color( which of course is rather poor considering that Microsoft is the publisher).
Money well spent at twice the price.
This books contains everything on building Windows 8 Apps with C# and XAML. As usual Charles Petzold doesn't disappoint.
Fundamentals are explained extremely well and supported by excellent examples. It is an eye opener for the .NET & and WinRT "mess / mix".
If you just discipline yourself to read the entire book from beginning to end, and build all of the exercises by yourself, you will be a very confident Win 8 developer that doesn't have to use Google too much.
Mr. Petzold, thank you for the great book!
