Contoso Cookbook for Windows 8 Release Candidate

    Question

  • hi 

    I attended a Microsoft Hands-On Lab some months ago (the Consumer Preview was out) and got a great tutorial for Windows 8 Metro-Style Apps (written in C#/XAML and/or JScript/HTML). Unfortunately this examples doesn't work in the Release Preview and it changed a lot. I am wondering if anyone knows wheter an updated version will be/is available? The tutorial is very great to see the development of an app step-by-step in detail (and it's not just a HelloWorld-example).

    thank you!

  • Hi,

    from what I know the Contoso Cookbook isn't updated to Release Preview yet, but Microsoft is working on it.
