  • Hi,

    A good starting point is to download Windows 8 Camp in a Box, Release Preview Edition http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29854 it contains Hands-on-labs, presentations, samples and resources from the Windows 8 camps.

    You can also find some other downloads from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/apps/br229516.aspx

    Another good place to start learning and read about Metro Style app development is http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps

    And lastly my own project Windows 8 Metro RSS Reader is completely open source, take a look at it http://metrorssreader.codeplex.com

    All the best,
