Last week I had a chance to speak at Windows 8 Camp hosted by Canada’s Technology Triangle .NET User Group. In this post I’d like to share some useful links to help attendees to learn more about Windows 8 app development.

Start by downloading Windows 8 Camp in a Box. This download contains two self-extracting archives with presentations and JavaScript and C# versions of hands-on labs from the camps.

Camp’s resources provide great introduction to Windows 8 development but if you need more information please visit This portal contains tons of materials related to Windows 8 app development including:

If you have a question but cannot find an answer in the documentation, you can always get advice in one of the developer forums.

Do you have your great app ready? It’s time to publish it – send app description to (if you are based in Canada, otherwise contact your local DPE evangelist) to schedule the app review. This is your chance to discuss the app with a Microsoft Service Engineer, to run it through the series of quality tests and to get a token that will let you register a Windows Store developer account.

Don’t forget to stay connected to get the latest Windows 8 news and feel free to contact me with your questions on Windows 8 app development.
