The list of things we need to do in order to create a new Win8 app project, implement its business logic, and upload it to the Windows Store may sound intimidating. The truth of the matter is it couldn't be easier. Develop, Test, Upload – that's all there is to it. In this session we will create a simple Metro Style application, make sure it passes certification and upload it to Windows Store.

You don't have to be a super developer to create a Metro Style application for Windows 8 – some of the best mobile apps are created by students. But to develop a GOOD app takes a certain amount of effort. We need to make our app stand out by creating a good user experience which follows the UI guidelines, and make sure it works flawlessly. Luckily, the certification of all apps helps us in the process of creating better apps, since we need to take care of the small details. We will show how we can leverage the built in tools to make our app certification-ready.

You will learn:
• Understand how to create a simple Metro Style App
• How to run app certification tests
• Experience the process of uploading an app to Windows Store
