    Windows Store apps with XAML and HTML - Part 2: Ebook

    Product Description

    This is the second part of Andrea Boschin's ebook 'Windows Store apps with XAML and HTML'.

    From the author:

    In this second part of the ebook, I'm showing a number of features implemented by both html5 and xaml. The purpose of this ebook is to enable people to easily migrate from a platform to the other when a customer requires an implementation in the language that is not yours. I'm really confident that this ebook will not move anyone from html to xaml or viceversa just because, as I'm strongly trained with xaml and I manage to use it every time I can just because it makes me fast as the light, someone may have the opposite feel. So I hope you may find useful reading these words and they help you to cross the line that separated these two representations of the same story.


    About the author:

    Andrea BoschinAndrea Boschin is a Silverlight MVP from Italy who currently lives and works in Treviso, a beautiful town near Venice. He started to work in the IT relatively late after doing some various jobs like graphic designer and school teacher. Finally he started to work into the web and learned by himself to program in VB and ASP and later in C# and ASP.NET. Since the start of his work, Andrea found he likes to learn new technologies and take them into the real world. This happened with ASP.NET, the source of his first two MVP awards, and recently with Silverlight, that he started to use from the v1.0 in some real projects.

    Windows Store apps with XAML and HTML: Ebook

    Product Description

    This ebook collects the 6 parts of SilverlightShow article series on developing Windows Store apps with XAML and HTML.

    From the author: I know, as a XAML developer, you are probably confident that you own the better way for writing stunning interfaces, with a productive timing, a consistent toolset and a powerful language like C# that is a sweet juice. I'm also pretty sure that HTML people is completely confortable on its side and do not feel the need of moving to another language. Unfortunately, landing on the real world, these strong reasons are not so strong for all the people, and often you are forced to rely on something you'd not use under normal conditions, as an example because your customer has some constraints that prevent you from use your consolidated XAML or HTML5 knowledge but wants the other.

    It's the main reason that convinced me to improve my knowledge in the HTML way to the Windows Store apps - also if I'm totally productive with the XAML side - together with personal will of being aware of all the technologies in my scope. During this exploration I've always kept my XAML knowledge as a guide to understand how the HTML apps works and I found that, under the hoods, the things are not so different and I think that someone may go on the same path backward from HTML to XAML, reading this ebook.

    Windows 8 Apps - The 8 Must-Know Tricks: Ebook

    Product Description

    This e-book collects the 8 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Windows 8 Apps - The 8 Must-Know Tricks'.

    From the author:

    One of the promises of Windows 8 is to be the next iteration of the most popular computer OS. Be excited, as this is the biggest & boldest change in Windows since 95 and there is a lot in it for developers. If you are a .NET developer, the programming paradigms in Windows 8 Metro apps should be very interesting, with fragments of it boiling over to other .NET development. XAML devs should feel right at home, as should web folks with strong HTML/JS/CSS skills. Metro apps are fun to write, in my opinion, and there is a huge potential to make a name for yourself when the Windows Store opens with Windows 8.

    I have had the superb pleasure of working on several Windows 8 Enterprise LOB Metro apps for proof-of-concept, along with some very talented internal developers/designers. Unfortunately, that also means NDA and not being able to talk about stuff yet. But what I can do is share some coding experiences, since there is a decent learning curve. I will try to keep the articles short for readability & jump into what you need to make your first Windows 8 Metro app.

    So, here is a series on common tips & tricks towards developing real-world Windows 8 Metro apps. We'll talk about some must-do things for Windows 8 Metro app developers. Simple, to the point, with some code examples on XAML/C# stack.

    Windows 8 and the Future of XAML: Ebook

    Product Description

    This ebook collects the 7 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Windows 8 and the Future of XAML', together with source code.

    From the author: It’s my goal in this series to introduce you to what we know at this point about Windows 8 and how we as (XAML) developers will need to adapt to the new platform.

    Since you’re probably a XAML developer like I am, we are going to see things from a XAML point-of-view. In some of the upcoming articles, I’m going to describe you how you can leverage what you already know in XAML when Windows 8 will be ready. I’m also going to spend time looking at how you can convert existing Silverlight applications to Windows 8 Metro apps, so that they follow the rules of the OS. We will also be spending time of course on digging into the developer framework making the development on Windows 8 easy: Windows Runtime or shorter, WinRT.

    Introduction to Windows 8 Metro Part 1: Ebook

    Product Description

    This ebook collects the first 7 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Windows 8 Metro', together with source code.

    In this first part (2 more parts expected to be released, following the development of the series) Andrea introduces the basic concepts of Windows 8 development, and covers developing your first application, the application life-cycle, the new metro controls and more. 

    From the author: In the recent days an epocal change is becoming evident. If you tried to download the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview, available for free on Microsoft website, you know what I mean. The change, that is greatly focused on a new user experience, is driven by the growing power of portable devices that are becoming prevalent on common desktop and laptops. Up to the day before today, tablet PCs, smartphones, and generically speaking touch-enabled devices was expensive and not effective, but they are now something that common people start to take in serious consideration from the effectiveness perspective and also from the economical point of view.

    As said, this change is mostly focused on a new user experience due to the fact that there is a shift of the attention from the business software to the consumer market. Never like today the wide availability of consumer application have been important and this, joined with the new touch paradigm requires a completely new set of rules to design the experience and the interaction of the user with your software.

    In this series I aim to share my evolving experience with the new Windows 8 Metro Applications. As few people knows I have a graphical background that lives side by side with my programmer soul. During this series I would like to discover most of the wonderful tools behind Metro applications.

    Creating SilverlightShow Windows Phone App: Ebook

    Product Description

    This e-book collects the 4 parts of SilverlightShow article series 'Creating the SilverlightShow Windows Phone Application' authored by Peter Kuhn.

    From the author: At the end of February, the official SilverlightShow Windows Phone app has been accepted into the Marketplace. The app gives you access to some of the content of this website, including news, articles and events, and is completely free for use (also ad-free!). Some of the convenience features include the possibility to create reminders for upcoming events and webinars directly on your phone, to get notifications about new content in the form of live tiles, and to maintain a local list of favorites that allows you to permanently store items for later reading. If you haven’t checked out the app yet, you can find more details and a quick intro video here, or visit its Marketplace page here.

    The creation of the app was an interesting experience, because unlike other phone projects I had worked on in the past, this one wasn’t a greenfield development. Obviously the SilverlightShow portal already existed, had a long-established production infrastructure and already a lot of existing content available.

    Working with Prism 4: E-book

    Product Description

    This e-book collects all 4 parts of the series Working with Prism 4, together with source code.


    From the author: Prism has a number of specific feature sets that I will explore in this series that helps you to build your client application as a composite application. These include:
    • Modularity – Functionality to define and dynamically load chunks of loosely coupled functionality into a single running application instance.
    • UI Composition – Functionality to plug in views into parent containers in a loosely coupled fashion where the parent and child do not need to know explicitly about one another with direct object references.
    • Communications – Functionality to support loosely coupled commands and pub/sub events between the components of your application.
    • Navigation – Functionality to switch views when the user interacts with the application within a container without every view and parent view needing to know about all the others.
    An important thing to understand about Prism is that it is not an all-or-nothing framework. You can use any one or several of the features in isolation and ignore the other parts if they do not make sense for your application or your requirements. In addition to these major features, there are many small little helper classes and utilities in Prism that can be used on their own as well.

    OData & Cloud Augmentation of Windows Phone Apps: Ebook

    Product Description

    This e-book collects all 3 parts of SilverlightShow article series on using OData and Azure in Windows Phone, together with source code.

    From the author: 

    Windows Azure & Windows Phone seem to be two very popular technologies out of Redmond right now.

    There is obviously a lot of buzz around cloud infrastructure involving Azure solutions and the wonderful developer story that we have for Windows Phone development. But, should these two platforms work together & if so, can they? How can you as a Mobile/Windows Phone developer utilize the cloud?

    In the first chapter, we talk about how to leverage Windows Azure to supplement our Windows Phone application. In particular, we will see how SQL Azure can be rather beneficial in providing globally accessible & scalable backend for mobile solutions on Windows Phone & other disparate platforms. The key link we shall leverage is OData Services for providing cross-platform read/write access to a central data repository...

    Silverlight and Sharepoint Working Together: Ebook

    Product Description

    This ebook collects the first 3 parts of Walter Ferrari's SilverlightShow article series Silverlight and SharePoint Working Together. More parts coming soon. All customers receive an updated ebook copy within one day from a new chapter release.

    From the author: With this I am starting out a series focused on finding the best way to have these two technologies (Sharepoint and Silverlight) working together. In this ebook we will explore some possible ways to make Silverlight work with some of the features of Sharepoint including the less known ones.
    What we'll cover in this ebook:
    • Cover the three techniques to Silverlight in Sharepoint. Recently Microsoft came out with a Visual Studio extension to facilitate this process, details here: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/pstubbs/archive/2011/04/04/add-silverlight-web-parts-to-sharepoint-using-new-visual-studio-extension.aspx 
    • Interaction between Sharepoint sites and Windows Phone 7: what is at disposal out of the box, what are the issues, how to build applications that take advantage from both the platforms etc
    • Sharepoint has a feature called "quick launch menu" which is a pre-build navigation system; the series will explain how to build a Silverlight menu which uses the same enigne of the "quick launch menu"
    • Experimenting Sharepoint with Silverlight 5 especially with regard to OOB apps
