Windows 8 RTM was yesterday – Aug 15th. This is big and was awesome! Having had the opportunity to work on some Windows 8 applications with some brilliant internal developers/designers, I have learnt a lot in the past few months. So, wanting to give a little back, I started writing an article series on SilverlightShow on real-world development tips and tricks towards writing Windows 8 applications. 8 must-know developers tips in 8 days – simple & to the point, with some code examples on XAML/C# stack. Here’s the indexed list for the series:

Day 1: Know the ecosystem; Start
Day 2: Layout, Navigation & Visual States
Day 3: Semantic Zoom
Day 4: Controls & Styling
Day 5: Search, Share & Settings Contracts
Day 6: Data Persistence & Application Life-Cycle Management
Day 7: Use of OData or Web Services
Day 8: Live Services integration

If you are writing applications for Windows 8 or you are on the fence, please check out the series above for tips on how to quickly make applications for Windows 8 which feel right at home in the OS. And please leave me feedback!

As always, check out the other great content on SilverlightShow.net to suit your development needs.
