    I meet all of the qualifications except the last… I can tell you from current experience (I've written three small apps) that the documentation is really bad. The #1 biggest mistake, is that all of the examples, all of the information is based around the code behind scenario, while everyone who's been around for a while says to use the MVVM patterns. So for someone new to the platform (like myself), the documentation teaches worst practices!

    The documentation is so much worse than the (really great) WPF documentation…

    where can I find the documentation?

  4. Hey Justin – I'm a PM for developer guidance.  I'd love to talk to you more about your experience.  If you have the time, send me a note on how I can contact you at margp (at) microsoft (dot) com.
