Windows 8 Development Resources for Everyone


If you are starting with Windows 8 development, but have no idea where to look for tools and additional resources, then look no further. Here is a list of places that you might want to visit to get up and running on WinRT/Metro development as fast as possible.

Developer Downloads

Developer Content (Articles/Posts) 

Have questions?

From experience, I would recommend heading straight to StackOverflow or MSDN Forums. Those are the only two resources where your WinRT/Metro development questions have the highest probabilty of getting the best answers.
