    i am a student. Beginner in programming. i want to be a part of app development in windows 8. guide me please

  • @Naqash Ahmed: A good place to start is the Windows Developer Center. In addition, there are some very good series on Channel 9. Check out  Windows Store apps for Absolute Beginners with C# and Windows Store apps for Absolute Beginners with JavaScript.


  • Great video, I will re-watch, as I am a beginner. I've finished the Windows store apps for the beginner, it's great. It got me thinking for I actually have a couple of cook books I was going to post, however, after seeing this I will wait I rebrand them.

    @Duncanma: Hey Duncan! WIsh I had the time but I was only there in Bellevue, other than the 2 hours at B20. Would have loved to see all you guys again. I miss Channel 9! You guys should build me a studio in Florida so I can start a show here Smiley

  • Hey Robert, I'm a new to developing windows store apps and i'm trying to implement data virtualization in my application. I did a research on the same and found quite a lot articles, including msdn forums  that tried to cover the topic however for a beginner developer like me i found those article quite confusing, could you help me in the topic and if possible an episode on the same would be fantastic.
