It’s not just Windows 8 users who need to get up to speed on the new OS: so do software developers.
If you’re ambitious to write applications for Windows 8, Getting Started with Windows 8 Apps by Ben Dewey is good preparation for the challenging changes in the development approach that Windows Runtime (WinRT) represents.
This month, all Windows Secrets subscribers can download an excerpt: Chapter 1, “Windows 8: A Quick Tour.” It starts with a concise summary of Windows 8′s new tile/touch interface and then briefly discusses the coding differences inherent in the new OS. This peek at Windows 8′s components might even interest users of the new OS who have no plans to code up a Win8 application.
