APPSolutely Practical End-to-End Windows Store Apps

What is it?

Not long ago Microsoft Patterns and Practices released this excellent prescription focused on Developing an End-to-End Store app using JavaScript. This book guide is based on the experiences of a fictitious team that created a photo browsing and editing app named Hilo.

It focuses on how to create a world-ready app that combines the power of HTML 5, CSS 3, and JavaScript with the controls and features provided by the Windows Runtime to create an app that looks and works great on both touch and non-touch devices.

Who is it for | What’s in it?

It is intended for any architect or developer who designs and builds Windows Store apps. This guide demonstrates:

  • How to build Windows Store apps that use async programming patterns, tiles, a splash screen, controls, pages, navigation, suspend & resume, and touch. 
  • The guide provides guidance on common development patterns and practices such as Model-View-Presenter (MVP) and Query Builder patterns and unit testing.

It contains a reference implementation sample to illustrate the concepts.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and the Windows Runtime to create a world-ready app for the global market. The Hilo source code includes support for three languages.
  • How to implement tiles, pages, controls, touch, navigation, file system queries, suspend/resume.
  • How to implement the Model-View-Presenter and query builder patterns.
  • How to test your app and tune its performance.

How to get it?
