Building Metro Style Applications for Windows 8 Using JavaScript and HTML - Part 2 of 2

Microsoft has released the Consumer Preview of Windows 8, the next release of Windows, along with beta versions of Visual Studio 11 and Expression Blend 5. These new beta versions allow developers to get started today in creating applications hosted on this exciting new operating system. Learning to create Metro style applications requires a bit of a learning curve, but it's not nearly as steep as the learning curve for the .NET Framework ten years ago. This two-part series introduces the new platform from a developer's perspective, and focuses on getting started building Metro style applications for Windows 8 using JavaScript and HTML. In this second session, we'll continue creating the RSS-reader application started in the previous session, add Metro-specific features, take a quick look at Expression Blend, and jump into some more advanced features. Here is the link to download the demo.http://dl.appdev.com/Live_Learning/Win8JavaHTML/DemoRssReader.zip
