Building a Windows Runtime (WinRT) app requires that you understand the WinRT environment, API, and related services.

This includes choosing the right project template, building the UI, interacting with remote services, integrating with the Windows 8 operating system through charms and other WinRT API services, and more. By the end of the day you’ll have a good understanding of WinRT development and everything the Windows 8 platform has to offer.

You will learn:

  • How to get started with Windows 8 WinRT app development
  • About the WinRT API and the features it provides for development of Windows Store Apps
  • WinRT app deployment through the Microsoft Store, and via sideloading for enterprise LOB apps
