Course Content

Module 1: Windows Store App Essentials

In this module, you will get an overview of the Windows 8.1 user experience and features, and will become acquainted with the Windows Store apps and the new user interface. You will review the process of developing apps by using XAML to create the user interface, and the WinRT API to interact with the platform.

Lessons

  • Review Windows Store App Essentials
  • Review Windows Store App Essentials – Under the Hood

Module 2: Implementing Animations and Transitions

In this module, you will learn how to add animations to your Windows Store apps, and how to take advantage of the functionality offered by the VisualStateManager class.

Lessons

  • Using Animations
  • Working with Transitions and Transformations

Lab : Implementing Animations and Transitions

Module 3: Implementing Globalization and Localization

In this module you will learn how globalization prepares an app for a global audience. This involves changing culture-specific elements of the user interface, such as dates, times, currencies, languages, and more. Localization takes globalization further by supporting specific languages, cultures, and regions.

Lessons

  • Working with Resource Files
  • Implementing Culture-Specific Formatting

Lab : Implementing Globalization and Localization

Module 4: Branding and a Seamless UI

This module explains how to brand your app and add a branded splash screen to improve user experience.

Lessons

  • Branding
  • Customizing the Splash Screen
  • Branding Your App’s UI

Lab : Branding and Seamless UI

Module 5: Advanced Data Scenarios in a Windows Store App

In this module, you will learn about the new file storage capabilities of Windows 8.1.In addition, you will learn how to use the file storage capabilities in your apps. You will also learn how to design and implement more useful data storage through caching and how to set up file extensions, associations, and compression. These features will help you to provide a better experience to the user by increasing the responsiveness of your app, and lowering its resource usage.

Lessons

  • Windows Store App Storage Options
  • Implementing Data Caching
  • Advanced File Functionality

Lab : Caching Data

Module 6: Creating Reusable Controls and Components

In this module, you will learn how the Windows Runtime (WinRT) contains a rich set of XAML controls, such as GridView, ListView, FlipView, and AppBar. In many cases, you can use these controls to create fully functional apps. However, if the built-in controls do not contain the functionality that you need, you can create your own custom controls. You will be able to reuse these custom controls in other apps, like any other built-in control.
 
You can also extend the WinRT itself to expose existing or new libraries to Windows Store apps. You can create custom WinRT components, which can be used from any supported programming language (C#, VB.NET, C++, or JavaScript).

Lessons

  • Working with Custom and Templated Controls
  • Creating and Using WinRT Components

Lab : Creating Reusable Controls and Components

Module 7: Implementing Advanced Contract Scenarios

This module describes how to use two new contracts:
• The Play To contract enables media sharing with other devices, such as television sets.
• The Print contract enables interaction with printing devices.
 
Windows Store apps can integrate with the contacts and calendar appointments managed by the operating system. You can create new contacts and calendar appointments, update and delete existing ones.
 
Lastly, you will learn how to take advantage of several convenient Windows 8.1 application programming interface (APIs) to provide exciting, user friendly features in your apps. Windows RT has native APIs for working with Portable Document Format (PDF) files, creating screenshots of your app, and generating speech from text through speech synthesis.

Lessons

  • The Play To Contract
  • The Print Contract
  • Integrating Contacts and Calendars
  • Support PDF files and screenshots
  • Integrating Speech Synthesis

Lab : Integrating the Print Contract Into the App
