Introduction to Windows Store app development for Android programmers


My teammate Hanu and I presented a session at Build 2013 (all recordings from the conference are here) that introduces Windows 8 development to Android developers.  Here is the official abstract:

This session will help developers leverage their existing Android concepts to build Windows Store apps. We will show the Windows 8 equivalents of Android tools, controls, navigation, data binding, storage options, app stores, and more. We will outline the fundamental platform capabilities from a developer perspective, calling out key similarities and differences between Android and Windows 8. Finally, we will use simple code demos to bootstrap your knowledge of Windows 8, so you will leave knowing how to begin real-world development of Windows Store apps.

Here are links to the slides and demos we used during the talk:
