Course description

In this course we will review a few of the many HTML5 elements that are available to us when we develop Windows 8 apps. We will also explore the WinJS controls that build on top of the elementary HTML5 markup traditionally used in web development. These WinJS controls are more powerful and flexible. Some of the WinJS controls we will explore include: AppBar, FlipView, Flyout, Repeater, SearchBox, TimePicker, and Tooltip. Finally we will look at the new WinJS 2.0 controls.

Prerequisites

This course assumes that students have some programming background and experience using Visual Studio 2010/2012 and Java Script, HTML5 and CSS3. In addition, the course assumes some basic knowledge of XAML markup and basic knowledge of Windows Store applications and Windows 8.
