Reviews “This is going to be the Windows 8 app book YOU MUST have in your library! It’s well written and expertly covers every aspect of how to build an HTML/JS app for Windows 8!” -Jonathan Antoine, Infinite Square and Microsoft MVP “Great introduction to app development for Windows 8. After so many years in the XAML space, this book made me want to consider the JavaScript/HTML route.” -Shawn Wildermuth, Microsoft MVP (Data), author, trainer, and speaker, “What you hold in your hands right now is an excellent walkthrough of how to build, ship, and profit from building apps using HTML and JavaScript for Windows 8. While I’ve been working on Windows 8 for the last two years, I can honestly say that I have learned about new parts of the platform from this book and can’t wait to build an app that uses them.” -From the Foreword by Chris Anderson, Distinguished Engineer, Windows Libraries for JavaScript, Microsoft Corp. “Chris and Brandon have gone to the heart of Windows 8 programming and produced a clear, concise, and easily understood tutorial that should be on every Windows 8 programmer’s bookshelf. If you are programming Windows 8 with HTML and JavaScript, this is the book you need.” -Jesse Liberty, Windows 8 technical evangelist, Telerik “I feel that this book will be the must-read reference for anyone who is dedicated to building a great Windows 8 app, and will be the book by which all others are compared. Yes, that’s a pretty bold statement, but considering that both of the authors have been deeply involved in Windows 8 app development for a LONG time, especially while they were at Microsoft, I feel confident in that statement.” -From the Foreword by Rey Bango, Developer Relations, Microsoft Corp. “This is easily the most well-written book on building Windows 8 apps with JavaScript that I have read. It has been an invaluable resource for helping me to transfer my experience with building large JavaScript applications and thick-client applications into a Windows 8 environment. Chris and Brandon do a masterful job of explaining that this is just HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, while at the same time distilling all of the intricate details and subtleties of running web technologies in a native Windows application environment, with the full power of WinRT and the JavaScript extensions for it.” -Derick Bailey, independent consultant, screencaster, speaker, and author, and “Chris and Brandon do a truly excellent job explaining how to create great Windows 8 applications. While reading this book I learned things about the platform.” -Josh Williams, Principal Development Lead for WinJS, Microsoft Corp.
