You’re ready for a whole new world of app development.

Using WinForms to build Windows Desktop apps is a great way to learn important C# concepts, but there’s so much more you can do with your programs. In this chapter, you’ll use XAML to design your Windows Store apps, you’ll learn how to build pages to fit any device, integrate your data into your pages with data binding, and use Visual Studio to cut through the mystery of XAML pages by exploring the objects created by your XAML code.
