New Ebook Added to SilverlightShow Shelf: Windows 8 and the Future of XAML

Almost one year passed since we launched SilverlightShow Ebooks Shelf and we now have 30+ ebooks authored by recognized MVPs and technology enthusiasts. And the last one that was added to the shelf will surely be of interest to the fans of Windows 8:

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

In this ebook, Silverlight MVP Gill Cleeren will introduce you to what is known at this point about Windows 8 and will explain how (XAML) developers can swiftly adapt to the new platform. Learn more »
