The IT Leader's Guide to Multicloud Readiness
This guide provides practical key insights and important factors to consider to make informed decisions in your multicloud journey.
I’m excited to share that Perficient colleague Kyle Burns has authored a book entitled “Beginning Windows 8 Application Development – XAML Edition.” From the press release, which can be read here
This book provides information technology professionals guidance on how to develop on Microsoft’s newest platform – Windows 8.
“As the world becomes more connected, people – employees, consumers, and partners – expect their devices to support how they like to communicate, operate and collaborate with one another. The launch of Windows 8 is aimed to provide a platform that supports this evolution,” said Burns. “The overall goal of this book was to share useful information for developers on how to build well-crafted applications that take into account the user experience, social integration and maintaining data and settings across multiple devices.”
“Beginning Windows 8 Application Development,” published by Apress, introduces developers to Windows 8 and the new Windows 8 programming model. Readers will learn to build rich, immersive applications designed to run on the many devices that will be powered by Windows 8. “Beginning Windows 8 Application Development” enables developers to:
- Apply Windows 8 modern user experience style design guidelines to build effective user interfaces
- Consume services to bring data into the application
- Use the cloud to share data and application settings across multiple devices
- Build next-generation connected and social applications
With the Windows 8 launch occuring today, it’s really exciting to see how the Perficient team is helping to share knowledge and awareness on how to make the most of the new platform!
