Formerly a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft, Stephen Walther now runs his own consulting and training company, www.SuperexpertTraining.com. He flies to companies and provides hands-on training on building Windows Store apps.
Stephen was completing his Ph.D. at MIT and teaching classes on metaphysics at MIT and Harvard when he abruptly realized that there is no money in metaphysics. He dropped out to help found two successful Internet startups. He created the Collegescape website, a website used by more than 200 colleges including Stanford, Harvard, and MIT for online college applications (sold to ETS). He also was a founder of CityAuction, which was one of the first and largest auction websites (sold to CitySearch).
You will learn about the following topics:
2. Databining data to controls
3. Basic HTML 5 Forms
4. Creating different types of menus
5. Create different types of data sources to store data
6. Application State
8. Basic graphics and a little about creating a basic game
So, if you need to get a Windows 8 App up and running quickly, this book will help you accomplish your goal. I literally couldn't stop reading this book because it was such an easy read for a technical book.
When I started, my instinct was to jump to practices I had been following for apps on other platforms, relying heavily on jQuery. However, I soon discovered that there were some limitations to what I could do with jQuery (Win8 security policies in place to prevent script injection) and could not find many answers on this, even on the MSDN forums. This book talks about jQuery right away and answered all my questions...awesome!
I found the book extremely easy to read and follow, and much more engaging than any other development book I have read. After just a couple days of ownership, I'm on chapter 7. Now, having learned so much more about WinJS and Win8 development in general, I'm considering starting my app completely from scratch so that I can apply all the new things I've learned. I wish a resource like this had been available when I started!
Very easy to read and navigate, simple samples that easy to apply to your code, much better explanations than at Microsoft Win 8 website. Strongly recommended.
I've contemplated going the SilverLight route for building Metro Apps, but I see JS in so many other places I thought I'd put the screws to myself and learn WinJS thinking I could use those skills in other places. (Knockout.js, Titanium)
I've gotten many of Stephens books. They've helped me an innumerable amount of times. I'm really grateful for his work. But this book is a bummer. Code listings don't have Line Numbers and do not have explicit explanations of "what, why and how". It's definitely not the usual "Unleashed" caliber of his past books (ASP.NET).
That said, it's a good book, but don't think that you're going to be up to speed with this book alone.
Also... It's only 330 pages. Other Unleashed books I've gotten are 1800 page "phone books" that I use for reference all the time. This thing is more like an intro to WinJS... Bummer. Now I'm sure I'll have to spend another $35 bucks to get fully up to speed. Maybe that's the new Apress marketing strategy?
