Summary: Visual Studio, even the express editions like Visual Studio Express for Windows 8, can be daunting to those who have never worked with the tools. Fortunately, you only need to learn perhaps 10% of the functionality for the most common and important tasks: managing projects, editing source code, and debugging. This video, part of the companion content from Programming Windows 8 Apps in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (a free ebook from Microsoft Press, see link below), takes you through those basics to have you up and running in about 10 minutes.
