Developer Reading List, December 21, 2012 New books on C, C#, Node, Win8 Apps, Perl and Groovy.
by Stephen Walter
Unlike any of the other books discussed here, this volume has color throughout: The code uses color syntax, and numerous full-color illustrations show how the controls work and exactly what the included code snippets do.
Due to the book's straightforward explanations and easy-to-follow step-by-step directions, this is probably the simplest way to learn to write Windows 8 apps. Highly recommended.
