Windows 10 Store Apps - Best way to get started?

    Question

  • Hello, I'm a hobbyst web developer and I want to start developing Windows Store Apps with Windows 10 RC and VS 2015. 

    I have downloaded all the necessary files and I"m checking the samples but this XAML is all new to me. What is the best way to start getting ahead? 

    Thanks

  • Go to Microsoft Virtual Academy and watch a few videos to get started.

    I have a 'Hello World' Universal App article on my blog (http://blog.grogansoft.com/). I explain the basics of working in Visual Studio.

    And ask any questions you have in this forum.

    You could stay away from XAML it first (by that I mean just use the visual designer and ignore the actual XAML code). But as a web developer you should pick up XAML easily. Windows 10 apps should be laid out similarly to websites to adapt to different screens.

    Use C# over VB if you're deciding between the two. It's much harder to find help with VB, and C# is such a great language anyway.
