C#, Visual Basic and the .NET tools have first-class support for the Windows Runtime. Learn about this integration and how to use C# and Visual Basic to write Metro style apps that call the Windows Runtime and how to build libraries that integrate with your Metro style apps using HTML.
This talk will cover how to bring existing C# or Visual Basic code into your Windows Metro style apps, enabling you to speed development through reuse. We will walk through the process of porting an app from Windows Phone to Metro style. You will see common issues that you may run into when bringing your code into Metro style apps, and how to resolve those issues. To maximize your benefit from this session, having some prior experience writing XAML-based apps is recommended.
